It's a beautiful new center where I could by a new straw hat and grab a cup of coffee to go and explore the markers strewn over the lot. These markers are the exact site of where the town buildings stood. Will not give away the whole plot to you non-Texans as to why there are no buildings standing from this town's humble beginnings on the Brazos River.
