Catalpas Come to Calhoun in 1911

(02/10/2002)

Transcribed by Norma Knotts Shaffer from microfilm of the Calhoun Chronicle dated 5/9/1911.

T.R. Stump has planted several thousand Catalpas seeds on his farm across the river from Grantsville and if the seeds grow he will start a grove of that kind of timber.  It is said to be one of the lightest, toughest, and most serviceable timbers grown, and of very rapid growth; and should Mr. Stump's experiment prove successful we predict that many land owners will soon be trying the same plan.
