Wilson County, Texas – Courthouse, 1940

..... While cleaning out a cabinet, Viola Henke came across an old photo that was either her Mom's or Grandma's. The photo date is 1940  ... the year Viola was born.  The remarkable photo shows the glory of the  courthouse 81 years ago with horses grazing the grass. {Thanks Viola for sharing!}
