    As described in the Greeley intro, the Valentin Gerth cabin was erected in 1856 by the first European settlers in the county. It is said to have been a station on the underground railway. I saw citations noting that the community had received awards from the Kansas State Historical Society for its outstanding work in the preservation of this cabin. It does indeed look like it could stand forever, although I wonder about flooding by nearby Pottawatomie Creek.

    I had already eaten lunch and was headed home when I stopped in Greeley. However, I have noted in Marci Penner's (now out-of-print) Guidebook for Kansas Explorers, the locals recommend the Greeley Cafe for its cheap prices and large portions. The pork tenderloin is a big draw.
