History

 

deMonye's Greenhouse was established in 1929 by the deMonye brothers.  The four brothers emigrated from the Netherlands to the United States to start an import business selling Holland bulbs.  Located on the banks of Alum Creek, the brothers sold Holland bulbs and grew cut flowers to sell to local florist.  Three of the four brothers returned to Holland after WWII, leaving the operation of the business to Arie deMonye who continued to operate as an importer and grower.  In 1953, a young student by the name of Jerry Killilea began to work for Mr. deMonye after school and as a summer job.  In 1965 Mr. deMonye decided to retire and he sold the business to Jerry and Lou Killilea and they have grown the business for the past 53 years.  All four of Jerry and Lou's children have helped operate the family business at one time or another.  Today, deMonye's Greenhouse, Inc. is one of the largest independent family-operated retail greenhouse growers in Central Ohio.  

        The original wooden greenhouses have all been replaced over the years.  Today there are almost two acres of greenhouse space for growing and selling plants on the original site.  Recently more moderization has taken place with the re-paving of the parking areas and the expansion of the outside sales area.  The Killilea family continues to upgrade and improve its facilities to provide better service to its customers.
