NCBG Timeline


1952

At the request of Dr. John Couch, UNC faculty mycologist and chair of the Botany Department, the Trustees of the University approve the creation of a botanical garden, setting aside a 72- acre tract of the Mason Farm woodlands for its development. (Additional lands, the Coker Pinetum and land around what becomes the Totten Center, are a bequest from the estate of Dr. Coker.)
