Well said John.  My thanks for maintaining this forum to its high standards.


Although I seldom post and my interest is rather narrow (Local History) I do check in often just to keep abreast of current development and events.

Dismuke -


Nice work on the tower photos and research.  I think I spotted a similar one following the Texas Electric Railway.  It was near but not on the interurban ROW nor related to it.  So far I've only found the single example but not where the service originated.


Not familiar with the National Historic Register but the Texas Historic Marker program is pretty simple.   Applications for 2016 must be submitted by 15 November and approvals are announced the following January.  There is an annual statewide quota and the subject matter is rated on several criteria.


I'm not able to post a link here for some reason but email me or just Google  - Texas Historical Marker 2016.


I obtained one in 2014 but took more than a year to iron out the inscription errors and have the marker cast.  The Texas Historic Commission prepares the inscription based on the application, which is a 6-8 page narrative with appropriate footnotes.
