Virtual Lunchbox Talk: History and Heritage of the Coker House and Gardens
William C. Coker came to Chapel Hill in 1903 as the first Professor of Botany. Over the first half of the 20th century, Professor Coker, as a botanist, planner and landscape designer, shaped the UNC campus and the Chapel Hill community. He is responsible for the design and creation of the Arboretum, named in his honor. His home and surrounding garden offer insight into this remarkable man and his wife, Louisa Venable Coker, and the enduring influence they had on this community. In 1985, Dr. Woodrow Burns, Jr. and his late wife, Mary Jane, purchased the Coker property from the university and oversaw the restoration of the home and garden.
