Brenham Ghost Town

IMG_0014-Edit-Edit-Edit-2

I stopped by before heading out to Austin. I had been passing over too many times.  I always wanted to check it out and I haven’t had an opportunity until last night.  It indeed is an abandoned building.  The sign said “no trespassing” and well, you know me, I trespassed anyway.  I was careful, not stepping on anything or rattlesnakes. I brought my headlights on.  It has never been mowed at all.  I saw the huge spider on the web hanging on the limb without disturbance from me.  I realized I was too close to try a picture.  I went out of the front yard, back on the street.  I found a perfect spot on the corner.  It’s creepy though.

I stopped at the gas station, asking the cashier if she knew anything about this ghost town. All I learned a little what it was about.

Mr. Winkelman moved the buildings on to the property from different areas around Texas. He wanted to make it a town for  bed and breakfast and little cafes. The area never took off due to family issues. It is inhabited by squatters now and the land is owned by a person in California.

When I got home, I googled to get more information and there were so little.  That’s all I know as I mentioned above.

Approximately 5 miles East of Brenham, on eastbound side of US 290. At the intersection of US 290 and Indian Paint Brush Road.

About christy

I'm a freelance photographer. I love creating visual eye candy, be it my digital artwork or photography. More often than not, it turns out to be a combination of both. Whatever catches my eye, I shoot, specializing in landscapes, sports and portraits." Hailed from the Texas-born Baton Rouge, Louisiana residence, my photography was always my hobby, off and on, when time permitted. I had itched for a big change. I bought my first DSLR camera, I found myself falling back into photography again, and I've decided to pursue it full-time. I am specializing in landscapes however my interests are in the horizon into family portraits, senior portraits, sports, events and whatever catches my eye, I shoot.
