"Old Yeller"

Salmon Lake recreation area. This property is owned by the Salmon family of Grapeland Texas. There is a small lake, Camp Ground facilitys for RV's, and lots of old buildings some of which are historic to the area. They have tried to move a lot of the old buildings in Houston Co. that were still standing to preserve local history. Houston County is the oldest County in Texas and is where my father's side of the family is from. Some of the ones around the lake can be rented for events and family reunions. Our Scoggin family reunion is held here each year. More recently they have added the old buildings and vehicles around the main gate area for people to see without having to pay the entry fee for the campground area of the property.

Back when I was in High School there was just a small lake and a diving platform at this location.

Someone's had a bit of imagination to make the place really interesting since the old days. I suppose you took your girlfriends down there Henry...

They've been adding things to the place since the 70's. Not much of a date night place though. :-/
