A Visit to Nursery,
fellowship hall looks to be perhaps an old school. The main drag with Nursery’s
former businesses is pretty much gone now and a new four lane highway (83) has
taken it's place. -

History in a Pecan
Gilbert Onderdonk, early
horticulturist established a nursery here in 1883 along the tracks of the San
Antonio and Mexican Gulf Railway. The townsite had been part of a huge tract that
had belonged to Silvestre De León, son of empresario Martín De León.
post office opened in 1884 and Onderdonk
served as postmaster. The population of Nursery largely depended on which season
and how many workers Mr. Onderdonk needed.
