What's the story with them? It's a neat display.

Not much here any more, just the ruins of a jail and what's left of the original county courthouse (it used to be two stories). It was the county seat until it lost an election in the 1950s and then it quickly dwindled away to nothing.

This is how the courthouse looked until it caught fire and the second floor was destroyed.

That's it Scott, Clairmont, lost a county seat election to Jayton and dried up over the next 50 years. If you look at mapquest it still shows streets, but there's nothing on them.

Yep. That place is dried up. It was on my way home (sort of) from my friends place in Matador.

TexTom and I are out at the moment. Will post where we were when home. Great music, beautiful day, good friends is all I'm saying..... And we're both 'somebody' because we're here. :smile:

Not to digress but I just ran across this article in the Fount of All Knowledge, The Fayette Country Record. The full name of St. Mary's in High Hill is "Navitiy of Mary, Blessed Virgin Catholic Church." Gotta keep those St Mary's separated. Not sure the possessive, St Mary's, is proper. Look for the upcoming article on the painted churches in Texas Highways.

The big catfish is in a city park in central Texas. Riders attending the Hico Pie Run from Austin or San Antonio passed through it.
