NCBG Timeline


The Paul Green Cabin is moved from its location on Greenwood Road in Chapel Hill to its current location in the Garden, and renovated. The cabin was built by Robert Davis as a basket-weaving and casket-building workshop on Davis family property, northwest of Chapel Hill on old Highway 86 between Calvander and Hillsborough. (In 1939, Davis's widow offered the structure to writer Paul Green, who moved it to woods near his home property where it served as his writing studio and retreat until 1965. The new owner of Green's Greenwood Rd. property, Dr. Maurice Newton, offers to donate the cabin to the NCBG.).

Owners of eight parcels of land sign over easements to the Botanical Garden Foundation for lands bordering Morgan Creek, which will help protect the Hunt Arboretum and Gray Bluff Garden.

The Totten Center art exhibit schedule includes for the first time an exhibit of works created by NCBG staff.

The 15-month study of the botany, ecology and future potential of the Hunt Arboretum is completed.

The Horticultural Therapy program will train staff of retirement communities, nursing homes and day care centers across North Carolina. It is expected that over 60 facilities will benefit from trained staffs' application of skills and knowledge with planted gardens and involvement of residents.

John Terres is honored with the Flora Caroliniana award.
