Map of Horne Creek Apples Across the South

We created a digital map of the Southern Apples that are grown in Horne Creek Farm, a NC Historic site that houses the Southern Heritage Apple Orchard.

The team used Lee’s notebook of letters and forms, nursery catalogs, and Old Southern Apples as a supplementary resource to gather the data.

Our intent behind creating this digital map is to help apple enthusiasts discover general information, the origins, and recent letters to Lee Calhoun regarding most common southern apple varieties.
