Tiny Texas

Gordon is just north of I-20 between Abilene and Ft. Worth –

The building below was the gem of the day. It’s the Sherwood Courthouse. Sherwood is southwest of San Angelo.

This last photo was taken in Menard – a metropolis compared to the little places above! Menard is southeast of San Angelo on Highway 83.
