Why the Redbud City? Back in 1961, a new beautification program was begun by a former mayor, Dr. Kenneth Malmberg. Trees were brought in and purchased by residents who planted them along the city streets. The slow-growing trees would take many years to mature, but more than forty years later, thousands of blossoms are seen each spring.
