Caddo Mounds State Historic Site - Presentation

  • Caddo Mounds National Historic Site 1649 State Highway 21 West Alto, TX, 75964 United States (map)

If you have not yet visited Caddo Mounds State Historic Site and seen their beautiful new visitor center and the amazing grass house, now you have TWO reasons to come. I will be presenting "Trammel's Trace: East Texas' First Road" on Saturday, December 9th.

Along with an overview of the Trace and the man for which it is named, Nicholas Trammell, I'll explain how many of those who used the road also crossed along the El Camino Real just behind the mounds. Books will be available for sale and for signing, and I will stick around to talk history with anyone interested. 

Come early to explore the mounds, see the new visitor center, and experience the grass house. You will be amazed. See you there!
