The "Menno Linden" is a very old splendid linden tree which stands before a small house near Fresenburg, between Hamburg and Lübeck in North Germany, which in the 1950s was a poorhouse. According to tradition this house was occupied by Menno's printer, and the tree was planted by Menno himself, hence the name. This story, though it is quite improbable, shows how tenaciously Menno's memory has attached itself to the locality where he spent the last years of his life. On 6 September 1922 a brief gilded inscription was put on the tree. In 1954 the Menno Stone was moved from its location in the adjacent field to the Menno Linden.
