Today is ABC Wednesday and "Q" is for Quaker Run Drive. This house, one of 27 on the street, is located in the Quaker Run neighborhood off of Horse Pen Creek and New Garden Roads. The street names-- Meeting House Drive, Friendsview Drive, Shaker Drive-- evoke Greensboro's Quaker heritage. Throughout the 1990's, many homes in Greensboro were built in a similar architectural style with hardy board exterior like the one above. In this neighborhood, residents spend considerable effort keeping their lawns and flower beds healthy. Not everyone, however, has an attitude fit for a yellow house. Living in a yellow house, could one be anything but cheerful?
Since only 21 streets in Greensboro start with a "Q", let's dim the screen and roll them out: Quad Oak, Quail Canyon, Quail Cove, Quail, Quail Oak, Quail Ridge Ct., Quail Ridge Dr., Quaker Landing Ct., Quaker Landing Road, Quaker Run, Quate, Queen Alice, Queen Beth, Queen Victoria, Queenanne, Queens, Queensberry, Quick Silver, Quincemoor, Quincy, and Quinlan. Well, its time to grab the camera and map and start visiting "R" streets. Visit our A-P streets here and leave a comment if you have an "R" request!
