1898 C E Allen's Plant and Seed Guide from Brattleboro, Vermont
C. E. Allen's green-house and seed and flower gardens, were located at 64 Canal street in Brattelboro, Vermont. They were established by Allen in 1868. Commencing in a small way, his business has gradually increased until Mr. ALLEN became the largest seed grower and dealer in the state. His hot houses covered an area of nearly half an acre, while he had several acres of strawberries, and twenty acres of land under cultivation. He employed twelve hands, which force, during the berry season, was increased to fifty. From Gazetteer and Business Directory of Windham County, Vt., 1724-1884.
