When to Lockhart, Texas, about an hours drive from me, just to take pictures. And, I spotted this fire house. I couldn't find much history on it but I did find a lot of information on the history of Lockhart. Here you go:

Caldwell County soil was found to be hospitable to cotton. After years of experimentation, Lockhart's A.D. Mebane developed a particularly hardy strain of cotton that continues to set a worldwide standard.

 

Oil and Texas are synonymous and Lockhart had its days as a boom town with the discovery and development of oil fields in the 1920's. Shallow field exploration continues in Caldwell County, with a major field surrounding Luling.

 

The coming of railroads and automobiles changed the face of Lockhart, as for all of America. The Sunset rail route reached Luling in 1874, and the Missouri, Kansas, Texas arrived in Lockhart in 1885. The first automobile in Lockhart was hand built by Lockhart blacksmith Emil Seeliger. The total cost of the contraption, including the $60 worth of tubeless tires, was $125. He took the car for its first drive in 1904, attaining the speed of 15 miles per hour.

Lockhart, TX

 

Caldwell County is a county located in the U.S. state of Texas. As of the 2010 census, the population was 38,066. Its county seat is Lockhart. The county was founded in 1848 and was named after Mathew Caldwell, a ranger captain who fought in the Battle of Plum Creek against the Comanches and against Santa Anna's armies during the Texas Revolution. Caldwell was also a signer of the Texas Declaration of Independence. Caldwell County is part of the Greater Austin metropolitan area.

 

The current Caldwell County Courthouse was built in 1893-1894. There is debate as to whether the design was by San Antonio architect Alfred Giles or Henri E. M. Guindon, who worked for Giles but not during the time the plans were sold to Caldwell County. The design is Second Empire-style architecture. The cornerstone was laid on August 15, 1893 and the county commissioners received the building on March 19, 1894. The walls are built of rusticated masonry and cream colored limestone and trimmed with red sandstone specified to be from Muldoon, Texas. In 1969 the building received air conditioning and had an elevator installed. Major restoration in 2000 brought the courthouse back to its historic appearance. The courthouse was rededicated in April 2000.

So as I sit here basking in the tropical heat of Thailand I have to make plans for my return to the arctic. I've had reports that temperatures are already below -45c and the season might possibly kick off early this year. Better get my act together and book some airplane tickets I suppose.

 

Confirmed this morning by e-mail that I have sold one of the images from this years Ice for a double page spread in a new book on the Winter Road, by Bill Braden, coming out in time for Christmas. Looking very much forward to seeing it in print when I get back to Canada.

 

In the meantime we're heading off to Krabi on Saturday for a few weeks rock climbing and relaxation. Not a bad life, this one.

The Caldwell County Courthouse is a historic courthouse located in Lockhart, Texas. The courthouse was built in 1894 to replace the existing courthouse, which was too small for the growing county. The courthouse was designated a Recorded Texas Historic Landmark in 1976 and was listed on the National Register of Historic Places on January 3, 1978.

The courthouse was built in the Second Empire architectural style, with the design often attributed to Alfred Giles; however, recent research indicates the building was designed by Henry E.M. Guidon, who eventually became partners with Giles. The courthouse is nearly identical to the courthouse in Goliad County, Texas, as it was built from the same Guidon plans.

The exterior of the three-story courthouse is built with cream-colored limestone and red sandstone. The central clock tower houses a four-faced Seth Thomas Clock Company clock and a 900-pound bell. The mansard roof of the courthouse is characteristic of Second Empire design.

Almost looks like moss on the cliffs after a season of good rain.

Just felt like making a quick profile picture.

 

Hope you're all doing well <3

this site is now covered with solar panels. i am so glad i spent some time out there documenting what was left of the old lockhart ranch and general store. but do wish i had explored around more.

 

"this was a working cattle ranch with a large mill and a general store on it with gas pumps. Several shops and apartments for the workers are also abandoned."

 

i am pretty sure this was a 3-exposure HDR.
