The Pecan Grove was planted in the early 20th century by Job. P Wyatt in order to supplement the farm’s income following the devastation of the Boll Weevil. Today the park retains a little less than 10 acres of a formerly much larger pecan grove. The beltline cut through what was once part of Oak View’s property. Eighty of the trees in the pecan grove were blown down during Hurricane Fran in 1996, but replacement trees were planted the following year.
