This big, beautiful work is chock-full of historic photos from Hardin County, Texas. That's where I grew up and I'm a descendant of some of the Big Thicket pioneers.
Renee Hart Wells compiled these photos into a book for the Hardin County Genealogical Society. She put in so much time, effort and work into this project. This great work in historic preservation is a wonderful gift to all Texans, not just those with Hardin County roots.
The Old House is pictured on page 281 (bottom photo). The top photo is the darling old home of a relative, Ruby Herrington, which is now owned by John and Lisa Ferguson.
At the time this book was being produced, Renee didn't know about my family's historic photos. She's hoping to include them in another book in the future. Fingers crossed!
In November, Renee spent two days at the Old House scanning photos. I am very grateful for her efforts. You can see them here on Facebook.
