Waymarking McGregor, TX 12/30/15

Posted on: December 30, 2015

Waymarking is a game where you mark unique locations on the planet that you feel others might enjoy visiting. You also can visit waymarks created by others, take a picture, and post it to the sites log.

So I went online and looked up McGregor’s existing waymarks before heading out. With nothing much listed I felt I had lots of opportunities to create new waymarks. Our first stop was the Coffee Cup CafĂ©.

We waymarked it and then drove around town. We next found this nice old church.

After photographing the Church we drove on and came on this new house.

We found out this new home is a replica of a home that was on the National Register of Historic Places. We continued driving around town and found this vacant church.

The church has a historic marker and we found out it is over 100 years old. Our search for interesting locations continued and we found this old movie theater.

While photographing the theater I noticed this old bank building with a date on the top. Lovely frieze art decorates this now vacant building.

Just down the street from this old bank building was an old Masonic Temple and next door was the Odd Fellows Lodge.

Both of these buildings are interesting and deserve to be waymarked.

We continued on and found the old RR depot. This depot is actually still an active depot and the Amtrak Trains stop here.

We did another drive through town and we found a lovely mural painted in 2008.
