Whitham Woods, encompasssing 133 acres, is the original site of the C.W. Whitham Nursery.  Many of the original nursery plantings have grown to maturity, creating an interesting diversification of plant materials. The north half of the area is covered by oak and hickory timber, providing excellent habitat for deer, squirrels, rabbits and various non-game bird species.  Within Whitham Woods you can find approximately 111 different species of trees, including 18 species of conifers and fruit trees such as apple, peach, pear and plum. It is used for such passive recreation forms as hiking, crosscountry skiing, photography, fishing, bird watching, and nature appreciation.  The Fairfield Loop Trail passes through the area.
