The Palms and the Palm Trees of Linden Ave.

There is a long, pretty row of palm trees on Linden Avenue. They have been here a long time. They're cool. The trees are really, really tall. A man named H.J. Laughlin planted them in front of his hotel called The White Sulpher Hotel in 1887. Some time later the hotel burnt down, but the trees are still standing. Now The Palms restaurant is there. The palm tress are a historical landmark in Carpinteria. They are Historical Landmark Number 3. The palm trees were planted 114 years ago! Here are some of the pictures we drew and some of the stories we wrote:

If you walk by Linden Ave., you can see the restaurant named "The Palms.'' There used to be a hotel that H. J. Laughlin built. The hotel was called "The White Sulpher'' hotel. It was built in 1887. The palm trees are still there. Years ago the hotel was burned down. H. J. Laughlin planted the palm trees in front of his hotel. The hotel was only burned down from the front.

The Palms

By Jeremy S.

In 1887 H. J. Laughlin came to Carpinteria and built a hotel called The White Sulpher Hotel. It stood on Linden Avenue. When H.J. Laughlin built the hotel he planted some palm trees in front of his hotel. Seven years later the hotel burned down. Now the Palms restaurant stands there. People like the palm trees because the palm trees are growing tall. They are also known to be historical landmark number 3.
