We walked a 10K in Bryan, today. Bryan is rarely referred to by itself. It is normally Bryan-College Station. But they are separate towns. Out walk started at the LaSalle Hotel with its historical marker.
From there we passed the Bryan Bomber’s statue. (Did you know they had a baseball team in Bryan?)
The Carnegie Library.
And the Queen Movie Theatre.
The town has several decorated locomotives. This is the first one we passed.
We passed lots of neat house, some new some old.
Two of them are Astin Mansions. The Astin family were cotton plantation owners.
There was interesting yard art.
There were two parks.
Another locomotive (I didn’t take pictures of them all).
The Bell from the Old Courthouse and a Fireman’s Memorial grace the library’s lawn.
It was a very nice walk with lots of shade. For information on doing this walk go to http://www.ava.org and click on the “events” link, then choose Texas. There are a lot of wonderful “urban tours” out there. Please consider taking up Volksmarching as a hobby and join us!
