My Ramblings

The first train robbery in Texas

Posted on | February 26, 2008 | Comments Off

I live in Allen, Texas which is one of those old and proud Texas towns with just enough history to put them on the map. One of the most revered historical events in Allen was the first train robbery in Texas. You can read about here. Anyway, we just celebrated this great historical event this last weekend with some fun things for the kids to do.

The kids got to ring a bell, make train stencils and go on a quilting treasure hunt.
