Over the past two decades Horse Pen Creek Road has transformed from a sleepy road to a busy hub of activity. The road is being widened and improved, as part of Greensboro's 2008 Transportation Bond referendum. Also, the Urban Loop is being routed underneath Horse Pen Creek. The projected completion date for the roadwork is 2019. The above photo features the last old-farmhouse on the road. The wooden farmhouse, peeking out from a dense field of bamboo, is tired and worn out; barely standing. It is located in across the road from Greensboro Montessori School.
You may recall from an earlier GDP post, Daystar will build a church on the property. Now that a lot of the the strip by the road has been cleared, the bamboo stands out. As seen on the photo above, when the sun sets on the bamboo thicket, it glows an almost translucent green. But, when the sun sets on the farmhouse, nothing will remain to remind us of the farmer, his black and white cows, his garden, and the dense bramble of blackberry canes surrounding the property. May Daystar be good stewards of the property. It is beautiful and so representative of the rural Greensboro of yesteryear.
