Silverton, Texas

29 Mar

Briscoe County.

Silverton is situated along two scenic drives:  The 85 and 207.  This area is known for its miles and miles of farming and ranching and that is apparent by a drive through the area.  I was in a rush to get to Dallas when I drove through Silverton last year and had no time to explore the town of 700 something.  There are all kinds of treasures to be found in this fabulous little town near Palo Duro Canyon.   I have a photo of the Old Jail Museum somewhere in a folder labeled “Texas Driveby’s”.

I miss the work I did in the Panhandle and the many drives to and from Grayson County.

    Silverton. I know it well. Ranching area still. Those little towns have antique stores that have a wealth of material. Too bad we all are going too fast to stop and look carefully — includes myself.

    Another one to add to our list of places to visit. Really enjoy reading your blog to ‘discover’ all these cool places.

    We are going to have to find you some time to stop and explore these little towns with your camera! Your readers desire more photos! At least, this one does 🙂

    Yes, you are right about that. Often I am in a mad rush to get somewhere, like the airport when I take pictures of these places. I need to STOP and enjoy the experience.
