Seymour (Baylor County) Volksmarch – 11/29/2014

 

Walk registration was here.

The Event in Seymour was a traditional event with people manning the start/finish.  Being the weekend right after Thanksgiving it gave me the opportunity not only to pick up another county and but to also walk off some of the great food I’ve been eating the last couple days.

Both sides of the museum has murals.  This is the other side in three sections.

This is the First Christian Church and the building has a historical marker that tells us it was made of native stone and was completed in 1907.

Hundred years old church.

This cute little guy is made of rebar and probably old farm equipment.  He was watching over a gate entrance.

We headed back up to town and passed a nice gazebo, then the Baylor County Courthouse. There was a 1936 county marker and then we came to a model of the old courthouse in a store window.  Now that was a nice courthouse, a shame they tore it down.

When we came to the post office the walk instructions told us to go inside and check out the mural.  It was behind a locked glass door so the picture didn’t turn out very well.

Back on the route we passed this horse bench outside a store.

Right across the street from the Museum was the City Municipal Building for lights and water.

We had great weather for this walk and enjoyed collecting another new county.
