South Main Poplars--Photo of the Day

When the early residents of the city laid out the streets, they planted poplar trees along many of the streets.  Notice the poplar trees that line South Main in the late 1800s.  Most of the trees were later removed as the city continued to grow and other types of trees were planted.  The poplars were first planted because they grew quickly and gave the needed shade the residents wanted.
