Travel Tips for Glen Rose

Skeletons in the Closet

by keeweechic

There is a legend to Glen Rose that says that in the 1870s a dying resident called John St. Helen confessed that he was really John Wilkes Booth (assassin of Lincoln). Instead of dying however, the poor man recovered, then found it convenient to kill himself. The witnesses who claimed to have had intimate knowledge of John Wilkes Booth came forward and identified marks on the body and confirmed John St Helen was indeed John Wilkes Booth.

Granbury

by keeweechic

Granbury is an excellent little town to visit, full of history and legend and wonderfully restored architecture. It has been billed as the town “Where Texas History Lives”.

The Square around the courthouse was the first in Texas to be listed on the National Register of Historic Places. Since then, many other projects all over American have been modelled on their restoration efforts. There is still an old fashioned drive-in movie theatre which show first run movies over the summer weekends. Many of the wonderful old homes in Granbury are now B & B’s making Granbury a popular ‘get away from it all’ destination especially as many of them are set on Lake Granbury. The lake was formed from a dam being built across the Brazos River at De Cordova Bend.

There are many legends and stories about Granbury – of Jesse James, Davy Crockett and John Wilkes Booth. Sightseeing around the Granbury area is also popular with many places just a short drive away.

Hopewell Post Office

by keeweechic

This tiny log cabin was established on May 24, 1901 and was discontinued in 1904. It was located in the Hopewell Community of Somervell County and was on the property that later became part of the dam of Squaw Creek Lake. Texas utilities moved all the buildings that were on the farm away.

A local lady, Winnie Miller Merrill who was born in 1894 remembered going to this little post office for the mail when she was about 7 yrs old.

Fossil Rim: Gemsbock

by sswagner

As visitors prepare to transit through the conservation area, they are given a sheet with photos of various animals that they might encounter. The Gemsbock is one of the easiest to identify because of the unmistakeable pattern on the face. These African antelopes tend to have very long horns, making them a very interesting animal for viewing.

Campbell Building

by keeweechic

This is one of two historic buildings on the square. It was build in 1894 by Dr T.B Campbell and his wife. The walls are native limestone and are 18” think. It has been a General store, telephone exchange, post office and other businesses. It has been recorded as a Texas Historic Landmark.
