Cleburne, TX – 06/15/2018

Cleburne is the Johnson County Seat. It is 30 miles south of Fort Worth on US-67. There is a state park nearby, but our walk was in the historic downtown. We walked on a Friday so we could get inside the courthouse and take a picture of the skylight under the dome.

Our reason for walking on a Friday instead of a Saturday.

Carol, Kerwin and Ed – my walking companions.

Nice Victorian

Former high school is now a courthouse.

The man the city was named after – Major-General Patrick Ronayne Cleburne
