Located on the Georgetown Divide just off Highway 193, this sleepy little village was once a rip-roaring gold camp with thousands of busy miners. The town was founded by John Greenwood, one of the many children of colorful mountain man Caleb Greenwood.

Today only a few homes remain. The Greenwood cemetery contains the remains of John A. Stone, nicknamed Old Put. A performer who roamed up and down the Mother Lode, he wrote many songs. His best-known effort is "Sweet Betsy from Pike."
