Mayowood Heritage Hemlock Fountain Pen

During renovations in the spring of 2013 at Mayowood, the country home of Dr. Charles H. Mayo, it was necessary to take down three Hemlock trees (coniferous evergreens). Estimate to be at least 100 years old by local master gardeners, it is believed that the trees were planted by Dr. Charlie himself given their location and placement in a straight line next to the home.
