Morgantown’s historic ginkgo tree is located at the corner of Cross and Washington Streets, next to Town Hall. The tree is in front of a home built by either Dr. R. C. Griffith or his parents, Reuben and Lovina Shell Griffith. R.C. was a soldier in the Civil War and ended up in the Andersonville, GA., prison. From his window he could see the tiny tree growing. He later wrote a book about the prison, then located other Indiana prisoners and returned to erect a memorial. At that time, he brought the ginkgo tree back home to Morgantown. The ginkgo tree is from China, where it is considered a sacred tree. The leaves are shaped like fans and turn yellow in the fall, all dropping within a 24 hour period.
