We were in Fredericksburg to do a volksmarching event. On the way into town we noticed some new construction next to Fort Martin Scott, so on the way out of town we stopped to check it out. This is what we found.
When we parked we first noticed this small statue called The Frontier Battalion Ranger a sculpture by artist Richard O. Cook.
We continued on past and entered the pavilion where we found this one.
This is called Watching Over the West a sculpture by Edd Hayes.
We continued through the pavilion and found one more sculpture.
This sculpture entitled simply “Texas Ranger” was created by Erik Christianson.
Next to this sculpture is an open air amphitheater.
Heading back we noticed the chuck wagon and covered wagon we’d overlooked before.
Passing our parked car we headed on over to the Ranger Ring of Honor, dedicated to those who gave all in their service to the Texas Rangers and to the Citizens of Texas. A taller person might get a better picture.
Next to that is the Campanile, or bell tower. I looked inside it doesn’t really have a bell. It has speakers where the sounds of bells ringing could be played.
We talked to the man in the gift shop, and he told us that there would be four more Texas Ranger Sculptures. So I will definitely have to stop back again and check out the next sculptures the next time I’m down in the Texas Hill Country.
