Meet A Very Determined Woman...
This lovely lady is Mary Lou Watkins (1917-2001),who singlehandedly fought to have Granbury's town square preserved, then listed on the National Register of Historic Places. For that effort, she is duly honored on grounds near the Hood County Courthouse.
I only wish I had taken this photo earlier, when the statue was NOT in the shade. Watkins was a relative of the Nutt Brothers, prominent businessmen of Granbury. (Please see my tip on the Nutt House)
Pate Museum of Transport

Hwy 377 Cresson.
At the west end of Crockett Street which runs through the square is Granbury Cemetery which sits up on a hill with a view over the town and some of Hood County. Here you will find the gravesite of General Hiram Granbury as well as Jesse James, the outlaw.
When Andy C Aston married Dorothy Ficklin he promised her a fine home as a wedding gift so in 1905 he had a gifted designer and builder build this wonderful Queen Anne style house. Mr Aston also owned the Aston-Landers saloon and it was said that his in-laws were concerned with how he made his money, so to also satisfy them, that that was another reason he promised to build this lovely home.
Mrs Aston was very active in her church and community and often opened her home for large gatherings. It was the first house built off the square. It is the home of Dr. and Mrs. Wilson and family today.

"Granbury Historical District"
Here is the courthouse, the heart of the historical district and the center of the square! There are lots of fun shops surrounding the square in the historic district. There are also plenty of little bed and breakfasts within walking distance of the square!
My bridesmaids and I went to Granbury for my (tame) bachelorette party and had so much fun! We rented a whole bed and breakfast that was in one of the historic site old houses. And we also went to a play in the opera house. It was such a fun weekend!
