New Sign on the Greenway

So proud to install the first of three informational signs on the greenway. Lots and lots of work went into  the design. Special thanks to designer Lee Seabrook; historian Brotherhug Barlow; and many other folks who provided expertise and editing! Funding for the signs was provided by Buncombe County and members of the FOHCG.

This sign is located at Cornbread Junction in the picnic area. Look for two others to be installed in the next week.
