Texas History Column for February 5 – 11

Almost forgot!  “This Week in Texas History” tells the story of Fort Clark in the column for the week of Wednesday, February 5 through Tuesday, February 11.

This border sentinel stood watch on the Rio Grande for nearly a century until the Army finally closed it down in 1946.  Then the proud old fort was turned into, of all things, a dude ranch!
