This was a year round event hosted by the Hood County Hummers Club. We registered at the Brookshire Grocery and began our walk.

Another nice wall with interesting shells.
Built in 1934, funded as a WPA government project during the Depression, as a replacement for the first county jail built in 1884, located on the same site. In the 1970s, the state of Texas condemned this building as a jail, forcing the county to build a new one. The county refurbished this building in 1991 for office space. The upstairs remains unchanged.
Interesting historical marker.
