We Love Smithville, Texas

The Smithville Chamber Banquet showed a video where they interviewed locals on why they loved Smithville.  There are a lot of neat photos of the beautiful homes here in Smithville. Look closely and you will see my grandparents home, and our home.  Here is the link to see the video on Loving Smithville. Looking at the photos you can see why film makers see the town full of sites for their movies. We are looking forward to the release of “Tree of Life,” starring Brad Pitt and Sean Penn in the fall of 2009.


Smithville’s Katy House celebrates Birthday

Our home is now 100 years old

and this is the Birthday Party invite.

The picture below is a postcard taken around 1911, just a few years after the home was built.

I am so glad the trees have grown, but it’s fun to see how it looked so long ago.
