Greenwood Valley Road

New feature. A weekly Picture of the Week, taken by me. This will happen every Saturday unless I don't have a worthy enough picture but I'm sure I'll find something.

The first entry is the intersection of the River Road and Greenwood Valley west of Lecompton near the county line. I enjoy the old sign hanging on the post and I tried to get the angle so you can see both directional signs in the background. I had also forgot about the railroad but was able to get that in the picture (at least the rail bed anyway). The intersection is marked as "Grover" on county maps but I've been able to find very little about this town. Right now there is only one house at the intersection and that hardly constitutes a town but at some point there must have been something else here. I'm just wondering why it's still being marked.
