John Samuels of Clinton, Horticultural Chief of the 1892 World’s Fair, brought ginkgo seedlings home to his West Clay Street residence when the great expo ended. The seedlings grew to maturety and a few still exist, making the ginkgo a species that is literally rooted in Hickman County History.


With that in mind, I created this stylized ginkgo design as a quilt triangle on the garage at The Emma House, 308 South Washington Street, Clinton, Ky 42031.GinkgoGarageFull The design on the garage is facing Crume Street and can be viewed from that location..
