Hood County, Texas Court House “ ...the center, the focus, the hub…,” is universal and we southern humans take comfort in the presence of the great structures, built by our forefathers, that anchored our childhoods, defined our pride of citizenship and have always commanded our respect.

Great post! Loved it. History is never far from home. Just have to dig a little.

Love history !!!!

Mary Lou Watkins, Queen of the Granbury Square

Mary was a rare combination of dreamer, tireless worker and motivator. During her early life she was a fashion model, author, mother, housewife, but she is most widely known for her work in the restoration of the Granbury town square. Mary returned to Granbury from Dallas in the late 1960s to restore the house in which she and her mother were born. After reopening the Nutt Hotel and Nutt House Dining Room, she recognized the economic success of her business, and her hometown, lay in the neglected beauty of the unspoiled town square. Mary and a small number of similarly resolute townspeople led the restoration of the limestone structures of the square. They assured the historic site's future integrity through official designation by state and national agencies. As you walk the square, you realize that at least 80% of the buildings have a historic marker. Today, the beautiful town square stands as a monument to Mary and others hard work and dedication. The Nutt House is located at 119 E. Bridge St, Granbury, Tx, Hood county, and just across the street is her statue. Happy Trails. — with Chuck Thomas and Gene Lambright.
