The Knox County Courthouse in the photo of this post is found in Benjamin, Texas. It is said that Benjamin is the only town named after someone struck by lightning. According to John Troesser, Benjamin Bedford was the son of the town founder and first postmaster, Hilory H. Bedford. (http://www.texasescapes.com/TOWNS/Benjamin/Benjamin.htm).
As small as Benjamin is, I find something new each drive through town and there is always an interesting conversation to be had with one of the locals. If you arrive at just the right time in the morning, the cowboys are driving with trailers in tow, going to and/or from work awaiting in the thousands of acres of ranchland.
