History in a Pecan Shell

La Bahia is a former village that today consists of a large white building, a cemetery (on Boundary School Road just off Hwy 237) and scattered residences.

The German surnames on the tombstones match many of the roads in the immediate area. Most of the inscriptions and epitaphs are in German as well.
