Historical Note

Horticulture classes were first taught in 1858 and were taught with botany classes. In 1872 the Botany Department changed its name to the Department of Botany and Horticulture. Horticulture became a separate department in 1883 and remains its own department today in the College of Agriculture and Natural Resources.
