This massive tree, 60″ in diameter, was taken down in 2001 after most of the tree had become hollow.  For just over 100 years, this maple tree shaded one of the Victorian homes on Linn Street.  The home was built in 1882 by Calvin Bower, a local attorney, and the tree appears to have been planted soon after the home was completed.

The wood from this tree had some very interesting grain patterns, from a curly figure at the base and some burls higher up in the tree.
