In the summer of 1858, the Reverend Samuel L.Tuttle instructed road builders not to cut down a large white oak tree which stood for many years on his property. The tree, which was directly in the path of what would become Prospect Street, was left untouched and became a cherished Madison landmark.(Submitted on March 5, 2022, by Seva Zaslavsky of Maplewood, New Jersey.)
