Next County – Change that two to three

As I posted earlier we will be heading down to South Texas to pick up new counties that are close together.  I just learned that in addition to Jim Wells County and Victoria County that Refugio County now has an event also.  So when we go we will get three new counties.


Refugio was the site of a Spanish Mission in the 1700’s, In addition to being settled by the Spanish, an Irish contingent that “got lost” on their journey to their land grant in San Patricio County also settled in the area. A battle of the Texas Revolution was fought there with all of the Texans losing their lives. They are buried in the Catholic Cemetery which is along the walk route. The walk route also includes some beautiful turn-of -the-century homes and the third St. Mary’s Church that was built around 1902.
