Students Continue Shook House Efforts
Friday, April 07, 2006
Built in 1795, by Revolutionary War
veteran Jacob Shook, the
Shook House lies close to the Pigeon River in Clyde. It is one of the
oldest if not the oldest house standing in Haywood County. As part of an
ongoing effort spearheaded by Horticulture Faculty George Thomas and John
Sherman new landscaping activities continue.
The students enrolled in landscape management
(co-taught by John Sherman and Buddy Tignor) finished sodding the front of
the Shook House complex and began seeding the remainder of the yard.
Horticulture Instructor George Thomas (in the
hat) assists students in putting straw down on the newly seeded yard.
After a hard afternoon's efforts the additional
turf is in place in both the front of the Shook Complex and...
to the side of the Shook House. If you have a
minute drive by and see how things are shaping up. Supplies have been
generously provided by Dr. Hall for these student learning activities.
