    Birdwatching

    Waskom is located very close to several lakes, which makes it an ideal location for birdwatching. At our house, we have several bird houses built for Purple Martins, which eat mosquitoes. We also have a nice bay window which overlooks some goldfinch feeders, loaded with thistle, so we are able to see a large variety of small birds.

    Texas Travel Center

    Waskom is known to many as the first friendly town in Texas, and therefore it is only logical that the official Texas welcome is done here.

    This beautiful travel information center has everything you need to put in the car with you for your trip through Texas.

    The people inside are very helpful and informative and provide you with tons of literature based on what you want to see!

    I would call this a must visit for every traveller that drives by!

    T C Lindsey Store

    T C Lindsey store in Jonesville has been in continuous operation since 1847 is owned and operated by the Vaughan family. Antique collections are on display. Hard-to-get items are for sale. It is the setting for two Disney Productions and several other movies. Step back in time to the late 1840's when you visit the general store.
