Stop 3: Oak Tree

Directions to Stop 3 from the well-spring: From the well, look toward the middle school. Do you see the large oak tree straight ahead? As you walk toward it, notice the similarities and differences between this historic photo and today.

View looking south along Senter Street, 1921 (toward the present-day Bell Middle School). See the red arrow? That tree is the oak tree you see right in front of you!

Here, Greeley’s farm road split into two directions. One trail went to the barn on present-day Aldridge Road; while the other went to the “House in the Woods.” The latter road used to pass by this oak tree, through what is now the Bell Middle School and the Church of St Mary the Virgin, and then turned uphill.
