Excerpt from Annual Report of the Minnesota State Horticultural Society, 1896, Vol. 24: Embracing the Transactions of the Society From December 3, 1895, to December 1, 1896, Including the Twelve Numbers of "the Minnesota Horticulturist" For 1896

Mr. 'yman Elliot was born in the town of Corinna, Maine, May 19, 1834. He attended the common schools and completed his edu cation by an academic course. While yet in his teens, he became useful as an assistant to his father in conducting his business, con sisting of merchant, saw and grist mill and farmer. He developed at an early age a taste for horticultural pursuits, assisting his mother in the cultivation of fruits and flowers, to which She was ardently devoted. At twenty years of age he emigrated with his father to Minneapolis, then a hamlet of only seventeen houses and buildings. Here they purchased the eighty acre tract of John L. Tenney for which was used many years fora farm and market garden. (mr. Elliot has the distinction of being the first market gardener in Minneapolis.) Going to Monticello, Wright County, Minn., in the winter of 1855, he took up a Claim, living in a log cabin located on the west bank Of the Mississippi river near the foot of Big Bear island. This is land at that time was a favorite camping ground of the Chippewa indians. Mr. Elliot was among the first settlers and actual culti vators of land west of the Mississippi river. Upon this claim, he started a farm, raising a bountiful crop of wheat, corn, potatoes and garden vegetables. The year following, he left his claim and re turned to Minneapolis, where he took charge of the home place and continued farming and market gardening for twenty-five years. From time to time, fruit, shade and ornamental trees were planted, convenient buildings erected, and the farm soon became known as the Minneapolis Garden and Nursery. In 1862, an extensive mar ket garden had been established. In 1864, he erected a greenhouse for the production of plants and flowers. In 1866, a nursery of trees was also planted, which not only made the Elliot farm attractive by its rows of fine shade trees, but this nursery was the source from which most of the trees were taken which have made the streets of Minneapolis so shady and beautiful. He also added to the garden and nursery the seed business, and maintained for several years a store in the city market for the sale of trees, shrubbery, plants, veg etables and flower and field seeds.
