Nursery, Trenholm Road: 1970s   3 comments

Posted at 12:32 am in business,historic

This lot, across from Trenholm Plaza and originally behind Bell's Drive-In and the Gulf station was once a plant nursery. I think I went there with my mother a few times, but I believe she favored another place, perhaps out on Two Notch. I can't really recall much about the place, even the name. And though it's hard to believe with all the building activity in this part of Forest Acres now, I do remember that after the Nursery closed, the lot sat vacant and overgrown (with some of the nursery infrastructure still there) for many years. Fairly recently, within the last ten years, I would say, it has become a dental plaza.

  1. I used to go far and wide on my bicycle, and the alley that went from behind Bell's and came out alongside this nursery was a great shortcut. I had a crash into the nursery's fence that I will never forget, though, when I learned for the first time what rain does to hand brakes on a bike.

  2. There was a nursery there in 1964. My parents used to get plants there.
