John Henline -
The Horse Community of Greenwood is a part of the Georgetown Divide (Cool, Garden
Valley, Pilot Hill, Kelsey, Greenwood, Georgetown communities). It is located about five miles west of Georgetown
(between Georgetown and Cool) along the Hwy 193 at the head of a long, fertile valley of gently rolling hills and
horse trails leading to the Western States, Tevis, Trails. It is called "The Divide" because it is divided by the
North and South Forks of the American River (famous for river rafting).
It is said Greenwood was originally called Long Valley. It was also briefly called Lewisville,
to honor the reportedly the first white child born in the county to the early arrivals, Lewis B. Myers and wife
Catherine. The area was first settled by Miwok and Maidu Indians. They lived quietly there until John Greenwood
established a trading post on May 7, 1849.
