Setting out from Georgetown (north of Austin) on Day 3, I was once again facing cloudy skies that made the Texas Hill Country seem just a bit less beautiful than they actually are. Heading west on Texas Route 29, my first stop…
… was the small town of Burnet, Texas. I took a quick five-minute walk around downtown…
…and the most interesting thing I found was the Bertram Globe Theater. Those people, and the box-office, are painted on plywood.
Sheriff Wallace W. Riddell still stands watch over the town and county of Burnet, just as he did during his 39 years in office. Behind his statue is the Burnet County Courthouse…
… which is surrounded by a collection of small businesses. Somehow, I get the feeling that Seidensticker’s Men’s Store isn’t exactly “almost new”.
Also near the courthouse, you’ll find a recent addition to Burnet, the History Plaza Clock. The pathway leading up to the clock is inscribed with events from Burnet’s history.
