Exclamation Old Bluffton, Texas-- Resurfaced

I was looking at Weather.com when I came across a video.

Due to the severe drought, that Texas is having, lost communities are meeting the sun again for the first time in a VERY long while.

They will only be visible, for a short time, as Texas is going into its 'wet' season.

Part of what is now revealed is old cemeteries. One group is trying to catalog a cemetery before it is again covered by the lake. If this is something that interests you, please see link below and contact them.


Here is a CBS video on what area's, in Texas, has places with buried history, available to see before the water comes back.

I am a history buff and would LOVE to see some of this. It is, seriously, a once in a lifetime opportunity!


If anyone does go to these sites, I would LOVE to see any photo's that you take.

I am not going into Texas, but I saw the report, and thought that would be neat to see the old towns and homesteads or what is left of them.

This was all over our news down here in TX, but to let you know it rained (finally) and these lakes now have water in them. I am a history buff too, but am so glad to see the rain.
