A brand-new 10,000 sq ft Visitor Center opened on April 27th. One month later I will be doing two presentations on Trammel's Trace at their new facility. The first will be at 11:00 am and the second will be at 2:00 pm, with books available for purchase and signing.
Session 1: "Trammel's Trace: The First Road to Texas from the North." This presentation will educate visitors about this early route through east Texas for immigration to Texas during the early 1800s. Participants will be provided a map to follow along as the author describes a trip down the trail, and connects the trail's namesake, Nicholas Trammell to Austin's colony and other events in early Texas.
Session 2: "Paying History Forward: Finding a 200-year Old Road." After a short intro to Trammel's Trace, this session will focus on efforts to locate the existing remains in eight counties of east Texas. The author and a group of "rut nuts" are engaging landowners in discovering, confirming, and preserving their own part of history. A very visual presentation of the old trail as it exists today.
What a great way to start a 3-day weekend!
