Notes from the past…

A Texas tragedy

Leave a comment

I just got home from work and checked the online version of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram. And what I just read made me furious and heart-broken at the same time! The historic Governor’s Mansion in Austin burned early this morning, with the fire believed to be intensionally set. Built in 1856, it is the oldest continually used executive residence west of the Mississippi.

Fortunately, no injuries have been reported, but what a huge loss for Texas and her people.
