We found a few interesting items in the Benchoff Building last weekend, some quite old. My favorite piece is this original invoice from the building in 1910. It is made out to the Gin and Ice Co. and still has "Menardville" along the top. Once the railroad came into town a few years later, the name was changed to Menard so that the new railroad signs would be easier to paint.
The next item is an age affidavit for liquor purchasing. Starting in 1933 an affidavit was used to prove age of 21 to drink because Texas Driver's License law wasn't enacted until April 1, 1936 to prove age. Thanks to @outmykitchenwindow for the research on that one.
Next up is a promotional University of Texas Longhorn Football schedule from 1936. That season, Texas went 2-6-1 overall. Even though it was one of their worst seasons ever, it wasn't a total loss. Their only two wins came over rivals Oklahoma and Texas A&M, making the season a fairly decent one by their standards!

We found a copy of the Menard Messenger from July 30, 1936. It features a fun little story about my wife's (@loneoakdesign) Grandfather and Great Grandmother. The Great Grandmother, coincidentally, was married in 1912 and had her wedding reception in the upstairs dancehall in our building!
Folks, we are barely scratching the surface so far. There is so much more to be discovered!

Cody + Brittaney // Cody is really into Texas History so he was excited that this photo was taken under the Sam Houston oak tree. March 13, 1836 General Houston and his troops established camp here after setting fire to the town of Gonzales.
Not exactly a romantic tale but Brittaney knew he would love the location which speaks for itself ❤️

Phenomenal meal tonight at the newly renovated @stagecoachinn in Salado, TX. Started off with deep-fried pork belly bacon and moved on to a tequila old fashioned cocktail and pimento cheese dip. Perfectly cooked Ribeye for the main course. And the signature "strawberry kiss" for dessert.
The photo is of Sam Houston who stayed in that room and delivered a famous speech from the balcony.

I've always been intrigued by these roadside Historical Markers and have made it a point recently to stop and photograph them more often. I love the last line on this one...#texashistory

The handmade (and hand painted) quilt depicting Coke County history hangs in the county commissioners courtroom. The Texas legislature established Coke County in 1889 in west central Texas. Its county seat is Robert Lee.⠀

Headed out to Big Bend and ran across this old abandoned cafe by chance. Neat piece of Texas oil boom history. #juliustherenegade #jeep #jeepbu #jeeprenegadetrailhawk #jeeprenegade #bfg #bfgko2 #rhinorack #renegadeownersoftexas #history#texashistory

Joseph and Martha Starks Wagley came to Red River County from Louisiana in 1833, settling in this area south of present-day Annona. The couple had eight children by the time of Martha's death in 1857, and Joseph later married widow Nancy Ann Coffee, with whom he had an additional two children. He served in the Confederate Army during the Civil War, and his son Starks died in the conflict. In 1866, Joseph Wagley sold 2,300 acres of land, including this family burial ground, to John C. and J.D. Garland, and moved to Callahan County. Several Wagley family members are known to be buried here, although only two of the graves are marked. The earliest death date on a tombstone, that of Ella McCallum, is 1874. The cemetery became known by the Garland name over the years, and family members deeded five acres to the Methodist church in 1914 for continued use as a graveyard. Today, Annona Methodist Church and members of the community maintain the historic site, which serves as a tie to generations of area settlers. Historic Texas Cemetery - 2005. (Marker #13789)
