1. Potters Park Marker
Inscription.  Early in the Nineteenth Century, Gifted German Potters settled in Greensboro, near the River. They learned to turn the gray Clay they found under their feet Into useful blue-gray containers, And jugs for storing butter, Cheese and pickled pork. Fame of their efforts traveled far And wide, down the Mississippi, And beyond New Orleans. Oh Yea Potters of Old Greensboro, You did your job well. This Potters Park is dedicated In the memory of your efforts by those Who followed you here. Now, rest in peace.
In the Year of Our Lord 2007
 
Erected 2007.
