Letter: Visit Pouley Road and see part of Dave Compton’s legacy

By on April 22, 2010

The south end of Pouley Road has been a pride and joy for Dave Compton and his family for more than 70 years.

In 1993, Dave started planting flowering crab trees along the road to enhance the beauty of one of the last gravel roads in Kane County.
Over the years, he planted by hand almost 100 trees. Please take time out of your busy schedule and slowly drive down the road to admire God’s beauty … the trees are in full bloom and gorgeous. Enjoy.
