Go West: A Compound in Albany, Texas, With Room for the Whole Dang Family

Share News:


It  seems like this might be the perfect time for bird or dove hunting, no? And you know a beautiful, not too far away place to go for that?

Albany, Texas.  Albany is about two and a half hours west of Preston Hollow, the center of my universe. The new visitors center at Fort Griffin is open, a fine football team brings a lot energy with their Friday night lights, the local historic theater is busy with classic movies, live music touring acts and a couple of plays. Oh and there are three new exhibitions opened at the Old Jail Art Center. We told you about this magical place last June, and we think you may want to take a look-see again now. I’m told the Albany homecoming parade was good, so the people planning the Christmas parade have a tough act to follow…   it’s a good, solid, energetic town where nothing but good stuff happens, kind of like Pleasantville. And right about now, Pleasantville sounds divine!
