Like too many commercial enterprises, very few records have survived to document the history of Orton Plantation’s gardens and nursery. Historical accounts, such as the cultural landscape report by Knott and her colleagues have relied on salvaged bits and pieces scattered at various repositories. This document assembles the currently known records of the plantation gardens and nursery, including correspondence and bills dating from 1937 through 1943, along with bank and accounting records dating from 1963 through 1973. While still resulting in a less than thorough historical overview, this study does address a previously ignored aspect of southeastern plantations – their development and operation during the twentieth century.
