Marking history

By Ruth Crawford

 

In 1889, a group of settlers in southeastern Bosque County established a place of worship as Coon Creek Missionary Baptist Church. These members were farmers and ranchers, who built a school which was used as a meeting place for this church. In 2015, the present congregation members decided that this place of worship and fellowship should be honored with an historical marker, and began the lengthy procedure. Judy Wasson, church clerk, a fifth generation member, began researching and writing the history.

By Simone Wichers-Voss

Floods in March and Oct. 2015 and in April and May 2016 wreaked havoc on county roads and bridges. Thanks to a Presidential Declaration that Bosque County was part of a disaster area, state and federal funding was available to repair the most extensively damaged areas. One of the bridges completely washed away was the bridge over Neil’s Creek on CR 4235. And because of all the paperwork and procedures, local residents have had to take alternate routes – often adding up to 20 miles to their daily commutes – for nearly a year.
