These two trees were grown from acorns in slop jars, by Uncle Dick Hatcher. He planted them not long after the courthouse was built in 1928. They received their name from Judge Wise's habit of using the benches beneath the trees to sit on while teaching Masonic knowledge to new members. Later local townsmen sat on the benches under the shade and discussed city happenings.
