On August 20, 1823, the Board of Trustees of Ohio University, of which Judge Ephraim Cutler was a leading member, set aside 300 acres "west of the College green" for a botanical garden and the site of a medical college, in memory of the co-founder of the University, Rev. Dr. Menasseh Cutler, who died July 26, 1823. The great Ginkgo Biloba nearby is a relic of these gardens, which are being commemorated this day August 20, 1973 by the planting of Franklinia Alatamaha by C. William O'Neill, Chief Justice of the Supreme Court of the State of Ohio.

This planting and plaque donated in honor of their botanical forefathers, the Rev. Dr. Manasseh Cutler and Judge Ephraim Cutler, by The Dawes Arboretum and for the Glory of God.
