Kermit, TX – Winkler County – Stamp #165 Collected

Saturday we drove north from Odessa to do our second 10K, in the little town of Kermit.  This fall/Halloween decoration was the first thing that caught my eye as we headed out.DSCF6592

We passed the school.

And then we came to the Community Church which was the first brick building built in Kermit.  The church was organized in 1910, but this building wasn’t built until 1938 after the discovery of oil in the area.

We passed this memorial to all the armed forces.

They have embraced Kermit the Frog making him welcome in the town.
