  • What readers say
    • • I find it especially moving that you would devote time and effort to such an obscure (and mostly vanished) little burg as Draw, and I express gratitude on behalf of all of us who once lived in or even passed through that little hamlet and now years later find it embedded in our fond memories.- Nolan Porterfield
    • • It’s good to know that someone takes the time to keep up with the history of the lesser known areas that are barely considered “towns.” Thanks for that. - David Scheffler, Kosciusko, Texas
    • • Your website is absolutely fabulous. Every time I take a road trip across Texas I always check your website first to see if there is something, anything, a courthouse or ghosttown, that I should visit along the way. - Bob Worley
    • • I love the general style of the entries. The humor is great. I especially liked the nicknames for Mentone. Keep up the great work. This is the most exciting thing I've seen for Texas devotees since the Texas Almanac. - J. Barnes, Humble
