I hope that everyone had a wonderful long holiday weekend! What did you all do? I can almost bet that you all did not do what I did. I went shopping at a gas station! Yes, you read that right- a gas station.
Can you guess what I purchased at the gas station?
|As soon as I saw it I had to bring it home with me!|
|Just look at all the farmhouse decor. Who could resist!? I already own that Old Farmer's Cow sign. I have yet to find a place to hang it up though.|
|They have old timey kitchen cookware and roosters.|
|Speaking of roos check out these new Jadite hens. I would have loved to have brought one home but at $60 a piece I decided they were staying there. I would rather find a vintage one.|
|Thought these were cute for those that love their coffee.|
|So much to look at! Check out the vintage inspired bread box.|
|Sunflower lovers would rejoice.|
It was a bustling little town of over 10,000 people back in its hay day. One that we never knew existed even though we drive by it all the time. The area contained thirty-one oil wells. In 1905 it was the largest oil field in Southeast Texas.
Moonshine Hill had around eight saloons, three grocery stores, a dance hall, a meat market, a drugstore, a two-room school building, and a union church
When I found all this out I was fascinated. I had read that there was not much remaining of Moonshine Hill but a few houses here or there and possibly a few other pieces of history. After driving around we could not find anything that remained of Moonshine Hill. It was a little depressing to think it was all gone but I know back in those days once drilling was done everyone packed up and moved on to the next big money making area. That is just how it was.
Anyways, hope your holiday weekend was a good one and I will be back soon to share what I am working on.
