Polish Settlements In This Part Of Texas


The first Poles came to Texas in 1854. This is St Anne's church in Kosciusko TX.

Kosciuszko TX

Named for a famous Polish general who fought with the rebel Americans against the British in the Revolutionary War. In May of 2009 I posted about a monument in New York State honoring  Kosciusko. here

Roadside Texas BBQ

We took FM-237 from FM-236 and drove through the beautiful Texas countryside. Turning on TX-72, we were in the outskirts of Yorktown TX. Last night, well, early this morning, Marie and I were watching Guy Fieri on Diners, Drive Ins and Dives and he had stopped at a roadside BBQ on the Rosedale Highway in Bakersfield CA. So, as we drove past, I thought about that and decided to turn around and sample some roadside Texas BBQ.
Marie and I have developed a taste for chopped BBQ Brisket sandwiches. We've been eating ours at Buc-ee's when we stop in either Port Lavaca, Wharton or I-10.
Anyway, we split a sandwich and it was tasty. The guy in the hoodie had taken out a big hunk of beef brisket that he had cooked in the smoker/BBQ.

Mission Valley TX

Mission Valley is on FM-236 between Victoria and Cuero. The Barn restaurant sure had something good cooking, as it smelled like hash browns in oil. Mmmmmm. Of course Marie's freshly grated hash browns cooked in butter can't be beat.

At FM-236 And US-77

Marie's Badge Number

When Marie was still working, 236 was her badge number. So, we stopped here and recognized that. FM-236 is in Victoria and ends in Cuero.
