The morning was early when I left Lubbock to Grayson County. Early is important in order to hit as many off-the-beaten path towns, ghost towns, and cemetaries. On rare occasions I take an atlas. I had been on every single major route to Lubbock and back thus it was time to fine another way.
Peacock is along Farm Road 2211 off Hwy 380 in Stonewall County. The 380 is an interesting drive by itself. But take a few small roads and the stories blur. Who named Peacock? Was it a family name since there are Peacock families in the area? There are probably less then a hundred people here.
I drove through town and on the few residential streets taking some photographs and notes. A man and his wife in their senior years came out on the front porch and stood there with their coffee looking at me as I sat across the street takin some shots. I waved. They waved back. Perhaps they are accustomed to people like me, photographers and notetakers collecting a splinter of their town’s life for a blog that only those who Google Peacock will find.
