Other than the publication of my book on Trammel's Trace, this is the most significant event on this journey into Texas history.
The Stone Fort Chapter of the Daughters of the Republic of Texas in Nacogdoches have undertaken an effort to plan, fund, and erect a 5-foot tall black granite marker memorializing the role of Trammel's Trace in early Texas history.
This stunning marker will interpret Trammel's Trace and its importance, display the map of the early route, and proudly display a DRT historical marker. The location for the marker will be along Banita Creek where the early road from the north likely intersected the San Antonio Road.
Plans are still being finalized for this significant event. The location is at the south end of Banita Creek Park, near the Farmer's Market, at the intersection of Pearl and Hospital streets.
