Persimmon

0-047     Native persimmon (Diospyros virginiana) are seen throughout our area, but this is the only one we have found at Oak Ridge. The grave of Springfield’s first settler, John Kelly, can be found just west of the tree. This is near the northern limit of Oak Ridge, although Calvary Cemetery to the north continues the scenic appearance without a break or fence to interrupt the view.
