Description

The grandmother of the neighborhood planted a chestnut tree on the intersection of NE 56th and Stanton as a young girl. The girl grew into a woman and passed away after a long life. The tree died shortly after. The community painted a tree design on the intersection to honor the grandmother. The neighborhood gathers every year to commemorate the tree and reinvigorate the painting.
