While doing a volksmarching event in Granbury, Tx I collected some new waymarks. Having been to Granbury on multiple occasions I’d already collected some of them.
These are the new ones I collected this trip.
Built in 1898 as a hardware store. In 1929 two walls were removed to make a drive in gas station. Now a restaurant.
City named for Confederate General General H.B. Granbury
Open only on weekends, the theatre shows two movies each Friday and Saturday night.
I even found one I could add to the Official Local Tourism Attractions category.
Big City Music Revue
On the way home we stopped in Walnut Springs to collect the waymarks in their park.
A gazebo from the 1930s
One of the seven springs that made Walnut Springs an important water stop.
Band Stand isn’t a waymark.
Historical Marker for James Buckner Barry
WWI and WWII War Memorial
Historical Marker for J.J. Cureton
Further down the road we stopped in Clifton to collect these existing waymarks.
A WPA mural located in the US Post Office
US Post Office was an existing waymark, but I added it as a WPA Project.
Historical Marker for the Whipple Truss Bridge
While there I took pictures of the actual bridge and made it into a waymark.
Created a new waymark under truss bridges.
One way bridge from 1884. Yes, we drove over it.
Next to the bridge was a rock structure so I took a picture of it. I later learned that the city park had CCC construction so I waymarked it too.
What is left of a CCC built latrine.
CCC built entrance gate.
Next to the Post Office is a small park with a statue and a veteran’s memorial which I also waymarked.
On the Banks of the Bosque by Bruce Greene (1999)
A bronze statue of a settler riding a horse that is drinking from the stream.
Emblems for all the branches of the military across the top.
Colorful monument to our service members
Just down the street was an old movie theatre which I also made into a waymark.
Texas’ oldest, continuously operating movie theatre.
First opened in 1919.
Our next stop was a cemetery way out in the country. Seriously make sure you have a full tank of gas before collecting this waymark.
Small cemetery behind a church building.
Sad marker but bettern than just “unknown”.
Our last stop was to take pictures of the railroad depot in Valley Mills and make it into a waymark.
Standard #9 Freight and Passenger Depot. Wood structure moved to town park in 1969. Park renamed Santa Fe Park.
A red Santa Fe Caboose (99249) sits next to the depot.
