We went to the Mission Tejas State Park today, it’s only 23 miles away. We walked trails, examined the mission replica built in 1936 to commemorate the Texas Centennial, 100 years of independence.
There was an old way station, log home built in 1828 on the road between Nacogdoches and San Antonio. 3 rooms, 3 fireplaces and 3 sleeping lofts. I explained how there was no electricity, running water or bathrooms. Boiling laundry in a big iron cauldron outside, no closet’s because people only had 2 sets of clothes, maybe 3. We stood in the dog run and felt the breeze.
