Armagnac, Nice bird, shame about the legs !! Great shot. I once had the luck to get very, very, close to a heron as it was fishing and so took quite a few shots but I did not offer him a drink ! :))

Earle-Harrison House & Pape Gardens
1901 N. 5th Street
Waco, Texas 76708
"Built in 1858 for Dr. Baylis Wood Earle, wife, Ann Eliza Harrison Earle and family, this side-entry Greek Revival style home is Waco's only restored antebellum building. With nine cypress columns and longleaf heart pine exterior sheathing, the 5,000 square foot structure has fourteen foot first-floor ceilings, walkthrough windows onto verandas, and spacious rooms. It's collection of fine Victorian furnishings and artifacts were gifts from Waco citizens, along with pieces from the Earle and Harrison descendants.
Earle-Harrison House served as the home of the Earle and the Harrison families until 1891, when it's second owner, General Thomas Harrison (Eliza's brother) passed away. The house was sold upon settlement of the Harrison estate, and it passed out of the family's hands before the beginning of the 20th century.
Eventually becoming subdivided into apartments and falling into disrepair, the building was slated for demolition in order to build a hotel on its 1 1/4 acre lot. Relocation/restoration efforts began in 1967, with the impassioned vision of local residents, Nell Jurney Pape and Lavonia Jenkins Barnes. Columns and the roof were removed, and the oak timberframe structure was cut in half with a chainsaw in order to lift the upper and lower sections on to trailers for the 1.9 mile ride to it's site. A three-year restoration of the building was completed with architect Rayford Stripling's guidance. Public tours were first offered in 1970." http://www.earleharrison.com/history.htm

Killeen High Avenue D School, a school built in 1923, with separate entrances for boys and girls. All grade levels were housed in the school for many years. The building, which features decorative stonework in its two stories and a basement, has been restored and now is used as Killeen's City Hall.
