subtitle: The Boundaries of Green Mountain Estates then and Now
Every now and then we come upon a nice map. This colored plate map was sent to us by Rocky Reynebeau. The fun part is seeing how our neighborhood grew in as fillings were added to the original Green Mountain Estates.
Now if we take a look articles in "Our History" we see:
"The area from Cedar to Ohio and from Alkire west was sold to us as GREEN MOUNTAIN FIRESIDE DIVISION. [Ed. Filing #1?] The rest of the division was known as GREEN MOUNTAIN ESTATES. I don’t know how the name on the stone at the beginning of Alkire came to be GREEN MOUNTAIN ESTATES, but when we first came here that was not the case. A man by the name of Mr. Kelly owned a lot of this mountain, and he put light poles, fire hydrants just where he thought they should go. The story goes that he did not go by code." (History - "Meet the Max's")
And then in the article titled "1964" we see an unattributed contribution which states:
"Her description was that Ohio was the dividing line. North of Ohio was "Fireside" and south of Ohio was "Green Mountain Estates". In Fireside, Richard Kelly was the man. The first house was occupied was in 1964. Back in those pre-incorporation days, Mr. Kelly was the law for his territory."
She went on, "Green Mountianside (emphasis on 'side') was east of Alkire. It was a turkey farm. I suggested that Cedar was a dirt road on the Haden property. She didn't know the owner but did know that it was for turkeys!"
