Indian Creek, southern Brown County in central Texas
Colin and I just returned from a drive down to Indian Creek in southern Brown
County. When we arrived in the old town, I realized how really long it had been
since my last visit. I was sure hoping that the old wooden 2-story Masonic or
I.O.O.F. Lodge was still there but was disappointed to find it long-gone. Other
changes are that there are more residents, some living in trailers, on the main
street of the old town than were there when I last visited. Not much more had
changed, however, but two very old gas pumps at the big rock school site were no
longer there. We also went a few miles out of Indian Creek to visit one of the
oldest river crossings, Key's Crossing, in the central Texas area. It crosses
the Colorado River. We took 15 photos on the trip and I have posted the first
in our "Brown County Places" album in our Photos section. This is one photo I took of a very old rock school that may have been Howard Payne University's first home before they moved the college to nearby Brownwood in the late 1800s.
