According to records, George Ward owned an apple orchard of 80 healthy and productive trees. His garden and orchard was said to be the best between Amherstburg and Delaware. Apple orchards were a common and essential part of settler life in the 1800s. Everyone grew his or her own fruit and vegetables.
Ward’s orchards were reportedly destroyed in the war. He was reimbursed and reestablished his orchard to its former greatness.
