    Gina- the company was in business from 1875 until 1931. Their catalogs & Mayflower magazine often are available online for sale still. The Floral Park Historical Society has a very large collection of them, along with many other local artifacts.

    I enjoy learning the history of a place. Floral Park is such a charming little town, I am not surprised to learn that it started out as a flower farm. I am sure that Mr. Childs gave Holland some competiton in his day!
