Landmarks[edit]

The current post office location is located on the west side of Arkansas Highway 33 at 20087 Highway 33 South. It is adjacent to the former Gregory Store, now currently a part time restaurant, which for many years along with the post office was the most prominent Gregory landmark. The current store building was built in 1989 after fire destroyed the original Gregory Store location, which sat in the same approximate location for several years. The immediate past Gregory post office location sits across the street, but has remained unoccupied for several years. In addition to the Gregory Store and post office, two church buildings are among the area's landmarks. The first is Gregory Baptist Church, where services are still held as of October 2013. The church was founded in 1941, is a member of the Calvary Baptist Association, based in Judsonia, Arkansas, and is located at 20184 Highway 33 South (on the east side of Highway 33). Services begin at 10:00 AM each Sunday morning. Historic Reed Cemetery is located to the south of the church building along Highway 33. Many of the headstones in the cemetery indicate burial dates from the early 1800s. Additionally, Walnut Grove Baptist Church sits just around the corner from Gregory Baptist Church and adjacent to Reed Cemetery. Walnut Grove church holds regular services as well.
