"A Guide to the Historic Architecture of Glen Rose, Texas Bypassed, Forgotten, and Preserved" by T. Lindsay Baker and Paul V. Chaplo

The Glen Rose book is printed! Stand by for a book signing in Glen Rose!

"A Guide to the Historic Architecture of Glen Rose, Texas
Bypassed, Forgotten, and Preserved"
By T. Lindsay Baker and Paul V. Chaplo

Located just west of the Fort Worth/Dallas Metroplex, the community of Glen Rose, on the banks of the spring-fed Paluxy River, has attracted people for a century and a half, not only for the shaded quiet of its streets and its historic structures, but also because of the fossilized dinosaur tracks plainly visible on the stone bottom of the nearby river.

Here, veteran Texas historian T. Lindsay Baker and photographer Paul V. Chaplo provide an illustrated tour of this picturesque town, transporting readers straight into its shaded streets and highlighting the many historic buildings.

A Guide to the Historic Architecture of Glen Rose, Texas: Bypassed, Forgotten, and Preserved is based heavily on research conducted by Baker and a team of Tarleton State University graduate students during their historic site survey of the town in spring 2010. Subsequently, they prepared a nomination to the National Register of Historic Places for the Glen Rose downtown district.

Opening with an introduction illustrated by historical photographs sketching the history of the town and placing the architecture of the community into context, the guide also includes a map showing the relative locations of each of the structures. A Guide to the Historic Architecture of Glen Rose, Texas, will offer heritage tourists, local history buffs, and general readers interested in Texas regional history and architecture an informative and visually engaging resource that is both authoritative and entertaining.
