When we travel around rural Texas, we come across a lot of historical markers…a lot! There are so many that it is impossible for us to stop at every one, but this little town of Sonora, Texas did catch our eye because of how many historical markers it had in one place…all standing proudly in front of a beautifully restored courthouse. It really shows how important history is to the state of Texas, and we definitely appreciate that!
