Author/historian T. Lindsay Baker and photographer Paul Chaplo have teamed-up to collaborate on a new book tentatively titled "A Guide to the Historic Architecture of Glen Rose, TX." The book has its roots in research conducted by historian Baker with his graduate students from Tarleton State University. That groundwork led to a successful NRHP application.

Now T. Lindsay and Paul join forces to create a beautifully illustrated book with great stories about the town and the amazing homes, buildings, and structures in Glen Rose, many of which are covered with petrified wood.

The beautiful town of Glen Rose is located on the banks of the Paluxy River. The first building in the town was Barnard's Mill, shown in the portrait of Baker and Chaplo above. The mill used water power to grind wheat into flour.

The Glen Rose book will be published by Texas A&M University Press. The book release will be accompanied by a book-signing in Glen Rose.
