Point, Texas

19 Feb

There’s Pilot Point, Morgan’s Point, Center Point, Oak Point, Wills Point, Eagle Point, Cooks Point, and Lake Point.  

There’s Texas Point National Refuge in Sabine Pass, and the Heart of Texas West Point Society in Central Texas.   

Point here and point there and you’re bound to end up at some point in the Lone Star State. 


And then there’s Point, Texas. 


Along the 69 in Rains County sits a community of about 700 something residents and is known as the Birthplace of the National Farmers Union.  This town’s been around since 1880.   People in Point know how to have a good time and know how to bring in a bit of the past to the stage.  The cotton gin in the photo below serves as an entertainment venue for the area.  Here you’ll find city meetings, music reviews, concerts, and the Annual Rural Idol competition. 


And it’s said there’s not much going on in rural America.

    Do you ever get around to Big Springs, or Merkel? My grandmother was born in Merkel and she and my granddad got married in Big Springs in 1916, before they moved to Grand Prairie. I wonder why they moved…they were so poor.
