    TIME AND CHANGE: BUCKEYE GROVE, A NATURAL MUSEUM HONORING FOOTBALL GREATS

    [​IMG]

    Time and Change is a weekly series highlighting the history of some of Ohio State's storied traditions.

    THEN
    Buckeye Memorial Grove was established in 1929 as a dedication to Ohio State’s first football team. An organization known as the Scarlet Key, made up of a group of football team managers, planted the first eleven trees in a football formation. Five more trees were planted to represent every player named to the All-American team.

    Under each tree laid a concrete nameplate including the name of the All-American and the years that they played football at Ohio State. One of the first and most notable trees in Buckeye Grove belongs to Chic Harley whose playing career was interrupted by World War I.

    Buckeye Grove is limited to football All-Americans, but athletes such as All-American basketball player, Jimmy Hull had a Buckeye tree in his honor planted across from the original site of Buckeye Grove.

    Based on a Columbus Dispatch article dated in 1945, Scarlet Key members would place Buckeye trees on the campus of every Ohio State opponent, but the organization eventually disbanded. Responsibilities for Buckeye Grove then shifted to Ohio Staters, Inc. post-World War II.

    Ohio Staters launched a relocation of Buckeye Grove after construction and space concerns. Ohio Staters had big plans for Buckeye Grove including: benches, walkways and a fountain to bring more attention to the historical area of campus. They planted over 100 Buckeye trees in Ohio State’s greenhouse that would eventually make the move over to Buckeye Grove when needed.
