We made a day trip to visit Gatesville, TX which is the county seat of Coryell County. This is a new walk location so we had a lot of fun exploring.
Walk start is at the Public Library.
Five statues, a clock, and a bell adorn the top of the courthouse.
We deviated from the walk route to go inside the courthouse. There is a lovely dome skylight.
Also in the courthouse rotunda is a statue of James Coryell, a Texas Ranger for whom the county was named.
Walk continued to Raby Park which has a lovely creek area.
We walked through the park.
We passed by the main entrance.
We continued through a residential area.
We entered the City Cemetery.
After circling the cemetery we left by the same gate.
Nice rock home.
First Baptist Church was built in 1936.
The walk goes past the WPA post office from 1936.
If you detour inside you will find a piece of WPA artwork from 1939.
We walked back past by the courthouse.
We saw this spinning wheel on display at the museum.
This is the Museum which is on Main Street.
We finished up the walk back at the library. This was the short 6K version of the walk. If you’d like more information on this event click on this link.
