"Celebrating its 100th birthday, the Linden Way Neighborhood was named for its mature linden trees (Tilia, also commonly called lime or basswood) that line the 1/4 mile long drive leading to the original Bryant House. Rumor has it that there are over 15 varieties of lindens on this street and that they were originally brought over from Holland, inspiring the famous Dutch signage that greets you as you drive onto the lane."
