field research: grassyville, texas

so on friday, omega and i headed towards bastrop on an adventure travel escapade, armed with a vague map, a gps device, a cooler filled with baby carrots and coconut water, and the goal of locating the ghost town of grassyville, tx and its historic cemetery.

grassyville was settled by german immigrants in 1856, in 1933, there were ten residents. the cemetery is small and down a red dirt road. it's kept after by a stately orange cow, contains all german names, mostly couples buried together, and a handful of confederate soldiers.

photographs to come soon.
