Noah  Milleson

The  Shelby  Democrat
February 13, 1879
VOL. 1;  No. 37
from the article, SMILING  SHELBYVILLE!
Is the founder and proprietor of the Pine Hill Nursery.  He was born in 1827, in Belmont county, Ohio.  During the gold fever excitement of 1852, he went to California.  He returned to Shelbyville in 1859, and purchased a tract of land adjoining the city to the southwest, and commenced the growing of fruit, ornamental and shade trees.  He has been in the business constantly ever since, and his stock at present embraces all kinds of apple, cherry, pear, quince and plum trees, grapes and strawberries of every variety; evergreens, and a great variety of flowering shrubs, vines, etc.  The Nursery has been a great benefit to the citizens of Shelby county, and they appreciate Mr. Milleson's efforts for the advancement and improvement of the fruit producing trees and plants of his raising, as his large trade abundantly proves.  In buying fruit trees away from home you never know what you are getting, and they may or may not prove to be what you bought them for.  Those who make their purchases at the Pine Hill Nursery are never troubled in this respect, as every thing sold by Mr. Milleson has always proved correct to its name.  Those in need of anything in his line should not fail to give him a call - you can depend on everything being just what he represents it to be.
