Seguin Texas about 15 miles from the house. This little "park" is next to the Guadalupe County building where I went to pick up my license plate renewal sticker. I have a minute - too rainy to work in the yard - let's just see what this is all about.
I love these scrolls - the arches look like something that would be in France - not Seguin.
"The iron cornices that frame the arbor were salvaged from the Seguin Train Depot."
A generous monument to the history of "Walnut Springs" now known as Seguin.
The short story.... Lipan Apache and Comanche Indians, travelers of the old Spanish Trail, a site of a Texas Ranger station are amongst the happenings on the banks of this spring. "Walnut Springs" almost became known as "Tescumbia" in 1839 from a popular song and dance tune. "Seguin" was chosen in honor of Colonel Juan N. Seguin - a nearby rancher, land owner and gallant soldier of the day.
"A proud past insuring a mighty future." Seguin Bicentennial Commission - July 4, 1976.
I can see some renovations being made to the area. Looks like a "river walk".
Looking toward Nolte Street.
When I got home I did a little investigation and found some information on "Walnut Branch Park Restoration". The present day bridge does not look like the former bridge.
Looking toward Court Street.
I think it will be nice when it is finished. Wonder if it will be the same as this photo?
Back up the trail.
I can not resist a mossy rock.
I am wondering if these red roses are the same as my "Seguin Red" found rose?
Look the same to me.
Interesting detour for the day.
