Travelers Repose / Blue & Gray - Pocahontas Co.

Travelers Repose is located on the east side of Bartow, just north of Green Bank. The roads in this area are great riding in any direction. You just can't go wrong.

The original building was burned during the Civil War, and was rebuilt in 1866.



Historical Marker (Side #1) located in front of the Travelers Repose at the junction of Rt 250 and Rt 28 at Bartow, about 10 miles north of Green Bank.

Same Marker - Side #2.

Travelers Repose.






Looking west past the junction of Rt 250 and Rt28. Bartow is in the background.




A terrible photo of a good informational plaque in front of the building. The black specks are just a few of the million flies enjoying the warmth of the sun, and the sun was positioned just right so I could not get a photo without my shadow.



Reminder to all who have contributed photos or plan to contribute to this thread - please read #297.
