Gladden - A Tiny Town

Gladden is so small that the town limits signs are on opposite sides of the same post -- or they used to be. Probably still are.

[O.T.Harris, 11/04/2012]

Yep, the signs are still there, official green highway markers that simply read "Gladden," mounted on opposite sides of the same post. There are a few widely scattered buildings, but the signpost is basically the town.
