    Collin Street Bakery

    by keeweechic Updated Oct 5, 2002

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Collin Street Bakery is the home of the original deluxe fruitcake. The bakery is open 7 days a week serving pastries, cakes, cookies, pies and their well known fruit cakes. We got a selection of various slices, cookies etc and my god, they were good. More like the NZ/Aussie bakeries that I am used to.

    First United Methodist Church

    by keeweechic Written Feb 25, 2003

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The first picture of the church showed a wooden building dating back to 1870. Because there was no railway, timber had to be hauled from Houston and Groesbeck to build the $4,000 church. A storm blew the 125ft steeple off the church and it was replaced, however another storm hit and again tore the steeple off. In 1896 the current large gothic building was begun and the first service was held in May 1897.

    Historic Homes

    by keeweechic Updated Oct 5, 2002

    1.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    There are many beautiful old homes in Corsicana dating back over 100 years. Set in tree lines streets with old rambling gardens, driving through some of these areas you will see some of the loveliest architecture in Texas. Governor's Drive, Mills Place, the Carriage District, are just some of the delightful areas of this city. This one to my knowledge is not even on the historic list, it was just a lovely home that caught my eye.

    Navarro County Courthouse

    by keeweechic Updated Oct 5, 2002

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The 1st temporary offices of the County were set up in 1848 in the home of pioneer Hampton McKinney. The 2nd temporary courthouse was a log cabin on the West 5th and 12th Ave built in 1853 which burned down in 1855 which then required a 3rd building. In 1880 a 4th courthouse was designed but proved too small and was condemned in 1904. The present courthouse was then built and features a clock dome and pedimental entryway. It was made a Texas Historic Landmark in 1983.
