Last Remnant of the Pioneering Spirit that formed Caldwell

Over 150 years ago the Indian, the buffalo and the deer roamed at will over the Texas prairies. The pioneers who traveled over this new land on horseback and with wagons endured many hardships. As they blazed new trails, fought for what they believed was right, and settled the land, they built their log cabins and towns as places of refuge, comfort, and community.

Today’s prosperous cities dot these green plains and the descendants of our ancestors are the current day "movers" and "shakers" of City and State affairs. Today’s generation understands that they “stand on the shoulders of those before them.”

To the memory of the pioneers who settled in Caldwell County -- this log cabin is a remembrance of their presence here.
