Students Continue Shook House Efforts

Built in 1795, by Reveloutionary 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.
