Activity on Moore Ave.

This building has sat for probably a year with no change, just a shell. I noticed workers today on the roof. Hopefully its to restore the building and not to tear it down. Anyone have any ideas?

Terrell Fire House

Terrell Fire Station, in the same building as City Hall and
the Police Department. Maybe time for a new building?

This is outside of a building on East Moore. The roof is painted like a Texas flag on one side and the American flag on the other.

Lake Bridgeport and Bridgeport, Texas

Here are a few pics from the trip yesterday.

Huge windmill blades

Yesterday on our road trip we passed a windmill manufacturer. I have seen these on TV before, I didnt realize how huge they are. These are pictures of the blades.
Here is a clip from a news story about the windmills that give the size.

Terrell Lodge No5

This building is just North of Moore on Catherine. You can see the faded writing on the building along with a faded crest.


If anyone would like to see a certain building or feature of Kaufman County posted here, email me at

I am interested in anything that depicts life in Terrell or Kaufman County, historic buildings, people, events. Terrell has a lot going for it, I want to highlight that in pictures on this site.

If you have pictures you would like posted, email them to me with a description. Keep'em clean.

Sante building

I may have already posted a picture of this shop, but I was surfing the net and found an old picture of the building. If you follow this link, there is a picture of an old movie house called the Palace.

In the background you can see the side of the Sante building. What I noticed was the balcony on the side of the building. If you look at the two pictures you can see where the balcony was and the door that has been turned into a window.

The large building in the center of the photo is where the downtown park will be. The building on that corner was demolished probably 10 years ago.

If you check out the link, be sure to check out the other pictures of old Cinemas of Terrell.

Site of future park

The Terrell Tribune has a story about the City converting a emply lot they own into a small City park. Sounds like a real good idea. It can be someplace appealing to the eye, an outdoor area for local workers to enjoy lunch hours, maybe a small garden. I look forward to seeing how it takes shape.

Looks like rain

Driving south on 205

it is rain
