"The Survivor Tree"

American Elm
April 19, is important as the date of the 1995 Oklahoma City Bombing.  An 80-year old American Elm tree is an integral part of the memorial site because, as the website states, the tree " survived the bomb’s blast and witnessed one of the worst terrorist attacks on American soil. Today, we call it the Survivor Tree."

Read the fascinating story of this tree and about the Oklahoma City National Memorial & Museum.

Here in Ocean City NJ, a Cedar Tree is an integral part of the founding of our city. Today, it is preserved inside the Tabernacle building. Scarborough Inn guests can easily visit the site; less than a 10-minute walk from our bed & breakfast.
