Menardville Texas 1899 Flood

2012 December 10

Wanted to share the 1899 Jun 6 Menardville Texas flood photo taken by N. H. Rose.  I wrote about Mr. Rose in my blog post:

His photo is looking due east and the San Saba River is on the far left side behind the buildings which are downtown.  You can see the old two story courthouse with copula on the top right.  This flood was very devastating to the homes and businesses.
