After Edna Kearns and Wilmer Kearns left Rockville Centre, NY to move to the Buckman family home in 1920, they opened a nursery known as Echo Dale in Plymough Heights, near Norristown, PA. Soon thereafter, their second daughter Wilma Buckman Kearns was born (November 12, 1920).
The library at the New York Botanical Gardens in the Bronx has Echo Dale nursery catalogs and other memorabilia in its collection. Music: Kevin MacLeod.
