It was a pleasure to see today that AOL Travel published two pieces on Greensburg by writer Diane Lambdin Meyer. The article After Devastating Tornado, Kansas Town Re-emerges "Like No Other Place in America" gives readers a brief history of the recovery and displays a series of before-and-after images. Coming up on 6 years post-tornado, it still stops you in your tracks to view images from the May 4, 2007 event.
The other post, Greensburg, Kansas: Five Places to Go, highlights GreenTown's Silo Eco-Home and Green Visitors Center, the 547 Arts Center, the Kiowa County Historical Museum and Soda Fountain (located inside the Kiowa County Commons building on Main Street), the Big Well Museum, and (the now defunct) "FEMAville". Greensburg is an intriguing place to visit, and the description "like no other place in America" is quite apt. Thanks to AOL Travel for the coverage and Diane for the glowing review of the community.
