Sliding

121313

Not too much left in Throckmorton, and it looks as though it’s sliding toward oblivion. The population decreased nearly 9% from 2000 to 2010.  Even more telling: in 2010, there were 466 housing units in town and 116 of them were vacant.

I found this near the intersection of Texas Street (which isn’t paved) and North Matthews Street (which is).

This isn’t the first time this particular structure’s made an appearance on the blog: you can see it here or here or here.

In Throckmorton, there are no more Lutherans from the looks of Sunday morning at the church.

There were, however, a lot of cars at the Baptist church.
