Honey Grove, Texas

25 Nov

5th Street and Market, Honey Grove. Supposedly the sweetest town in Texas. According to reports, Davy Crockett allegedly passed through these parts on his way to the Alamo. That’s what they say in all the stories. But you know, every town has some historical character’s footprint in the town square.

I must say that this sweet little Texas town is loaded with photo opportunities. This is a must and it won’t be until the spring time that I return with all my gear and notepad to scribble notes for all the stories behind the stories. You know how people like to talk about their own stompin ground.

Where in Texas is Honey Grove?
North Central Texas in Fannin County along Highway 82 about 90 miles northeast of Dallas. Population is around 2000.

    Now that was a cool history lesson. Sometimes I get to Dallas on business trips and I need to stretch it out just a wee bit.

    Been to Honey Grove many times. We used to go canoe fishing on a nearby lake…was it Lake Davy Crockett? Your photos make me want to go back and see it all over again.

    My family came to Honey Grove in the 1840’s and 1850’s. I’ve always wanted to live there. Maybe I will someday!
