The Myrtle grounds and history
Myrtle Creek, which meanders through the grounds of this 30-acre farm, is a clear running, spring-fed stream flowing year-round.
The Landmark Fallbrook Barn, home to a few lucky farm animals, is the oldest original structure on the grounds. Its red color is derived from original settlers who treated the wood planking with a mixture of linseed oil and rust from retired farm equipment. The stunning hand-painted mural which adorns its front-face makes this barn picture-perfect.
The design of the Sherman Plantation House, which overlooks the nursery grounds, was inspired by architectural drawing of an 1840s Atlanta plantation house. The Sherman family – the current owners of Myrtle Creek Gardens & Nursery – are descendants of General William Tecumseh Sherman.
General Sherman, nicknamed “Uncle Billy” by his Union Army troops, is famous for fighting for rights and “freedom for all” in the American Civil War.
The farmhouse, circa 1899, was an original homestead in Fallbrook’s Myrtle Creek Valley. Settlers raised the barn and resided with their livestock while they constructed the Fallbrook Farmhouse.
