Day Trip to Crockett 🪕 (FULL EPISODE) S10 E3

Published

on

SUMMARY: In East Texas, Crockett is a town rich in history and culture, from its origins as the Republic of Texas’s first new county to its significance in the lives of famous figures like Davy Crockett. The town boasts historical sites like the Caddo Mounds State Historic Site, remnants of the Spanish influence, musical venues frequented by legends of the blues, and mouthwatering country cooking at places like Rosemary’s Hilltop Kitchen. With a near 60-year frozen-in-time downtown area, Crockett offers visitors a glimpse into the past and an appreciation for the various influences that have contributed to Texas’s history.

Behind the towering green veil of the Pine Curtain, time slows down in the Hub of Houston County, and if you take the time to slow down too…well I think you’ll like what you find.

You’re probably wondering how this town is connected to the Texas hero, Davy Crockett, and this spring in Brewer Park is the place to find out. Back in the 1800s, Davy stopped in town to visit a friend, and on his way he stopped at this very spring to get a drink of water. Historic! And thus the town was renamed…

Visit this site that was once a bustling village of native Caddo Indians, living in little grass houses just like the one recreated by Caddo Indians. Fun Fact: the word “Texas” came from the Caddo Indians word for “welcome.”

This mission reconstructed by the CCC is a loose representation of the Mission San Francisco de Tejas, the first Spanish mission in Texas established in 1690. The original mission was only in the area for 4 years before it was relocated to San Antonio as Mission Esperada.

The best place to dive into the music history of this town is at this little joint where Lightning Hopkins used to play for tips before he struck it big as a blues artist. Stop in for a show, and if you’re lucky, you’ll get to see owner Pip Gillette do some pickin’ on the banjo and play the rib bones.

In town, you’ll find the ruins of Mary Allen College, the first women’s college for African Americans in the state. It’s a cool sight, and an even cooler significant moment in Texas history.

At first glance, this place doesn’t look like much, but it’s a local favorite. Owned by the mayor, this cafe is decorated with tons of (you guessed it!) Moose heads and serves up a mean patty melt. Don’t forget to order the fried pickles, too!

For a down home atmosphere and a family-potluck-style buffet, look no further than Rosemary’s. Each day is a new special, but you can bet it’ll be finger-licking — especially when you wash it down with a homemade pie for dessert!

This hiking trail might just be one of the most significant in Texas. Also called the “King’s Highway” or the “Old San Antonio Road” this is the pathway taken by all the Texas heroes (we’re talking Austin, Bowie, Crockett) that once led from Louisiana to Mexico. This is the only remaining section and it’s a pretty awesome hike!

One of the biggest nearby attractions is the Davy Crockett National Forest, which is 160,000 acres of incredibly beautiful East Texas nature. Spend some time wandering through the towering pines or paddling the Four C National Recreational Trail.

Published

The Texas Longhorns have won three out of four Directors Cup trophies, and have undoubtedly been one of the best athletic programs in the country as a whole over that span. However, the four biggest programs that move the needle, are football, mens and womens basketball, and baseball, and those programs have not won a championship in the first half of the decade. Today we discuss, their outlook over the next five seasons, and if one of these major programs in Austin can break through.

As we inch closer and closer to the season, Vegas is starting to set lines for game action throughout College Football. We had an idea that Texas would be favored in 11 of 12 games this season, with the lone exception being the Georgia Bulldogs, but had no idea just how much better Vegas thought Texas was compared to their opponents. We now have access to five of the twelve betting lines associated with the Texas Longhorns and their opponents this season and they are #interesting.

Why It’s College Football Playoffs or Bust for the 2024 Texas Longhorns Football Team?

Published

on

www.youtube.com – Locked On Longhorns – 2024-06-13 11:00:39

In about two to three weeks, the Texas Longhorns will be joining the SEC for their inaugural season, in the same season that the College Football Playoffs will expand from four to twelve teams. This unique storm, creates in my opinion, a playoffs or bust scenario as echoed by @Horns247 . Would you consider this season a failure for Texas if they were considered the thirteenth best team or lower? (Yes) #HookEm
