Briggs Nursery in North Attleboro, MA - Horticulture is a generations old tradition for the Briggs Family, starting with “Grandpa” Briggs who owned a nursery in Dighton, MA. during the 1930’s and 1940’s, serving customers in the Taunton area. In 1961, Briggs Nursery, Inc. of North Attleboro was started as a landscape design and build company by Paul and Barbara Briggs. The Briggs’ built a large and loyal following of local clients, building small- and large-scale landscaping projects including ball fields and parks. In 1962, the family purchased the current location (a former poultry farm) where they built a retail nursery, greenhouse and garden center. The business continued to thrive but experienced a devastating setback on a bitter December night in 1969 when a major fire destroyed the retail complex. Recovering quickly, the family persevered, rebuilding and improving the facility.
