It doesn’t take much thought when considering how this little town got started. Farmersville is one of those sweet little mainstreet communities in rural America with all the warmth and character a town can have. And to top it off, Audie Murphy lived here. You can ask anyone in these parts about Farmersville and Murphy’s name is said and of course their story of when they saw him back in their days.
I knew where Farmersville was on the map but had never made any effort to drive there. Fortunately I have this fabulous job that keeps me on those backroads I so love. Only a few short weeks ago I found myself right here in Farmersville TX. The day was gloomy and very cold. I will return to the area and will spend much more time photographing this precious treasure of Texas.
On the square is found this sky scraper and it was the “Upper Room” that caught my eye. According to what I picked up off the street in town with a local is that the Methodist church was the second established church in Farmersville.
