In our lovely Lake City, we have one of the most beautiful and scenic drives with which any town could be graced: Rosenberry Drive. The exquisite tree-lined roadway with magnificent vistas of Lake Coeur d'Alene is surrounded by beaches that have welcomed residents and tourists for decades. Rosenberry Drive has been front and center in the local and regional media for the past several months. A number of local folks have asked me, "Who was your grandfather, and what did he do?" For you see, my grandfather was the man for whom the road was named. As the road re-opens to the public, it my honor to tell you who he was. Like so many residents of the Lake City, my grandfather, Walter S. Rosenberry, was not born here/Sara Ferris, Coeur d'Alene Press. More here.

Question: So, where does Rosenberry Drive begin -- and end?
