Crowell – Foard County – 09/04/2015

Our third county for this trip was Foard. The county seat is Crowell and it is west of Paducah on US-70.  We arrived at 7:30 and walked around the courthouse taking pictures before realizing the walk box was on the doorstep of the restaurant and we didn’t have to wait for the restaurant to open.

    I like these pictorial trips through Texas. The city hall, jail and gravel road didn’t really surprise me. There are some backwoods kind of places there.
