Another Cowhand gone to the Last Roundup.

Charlie (Charleen) Reagan Brown left the Brush Country she loved today, January 6, 2015 for the last time. Once again, she is with Tige Brown, her lifetime love, husband, and father of their three children. RIP, Charlie. The Brush Country will always remember you. Among other things, Charlie was the first woman to graduate in Texas with a degree in agriculture, rodeo champion of barrel racing and cattle cutting, trick roper, leather artist, middle school teacher, and church leader. She is a current nominee for the National Cowgirl Hall of Fame. Her daddy, Pryor Reagan, always called her his "cowhand".

Texas and it's towns

How Texas and the Southwest came to life is one of the most amazing and inspirational stories. 


We have focused our works around cities, regions and people.  Read on for stories that happened in our great state.

Pictures from Three Rivers Past

        Three Rivers is an old town in South Texas built in the early part of the twentieth century about eighty miles straight south of San Antonio. A small town of old, empty and dusty buildings, Three Rivers sits in a shallow basin where the Nueces, Frio, and Atascosa rivers meet.  

      True, some of the town’s old structures are still in use. There are newer ones cropping up here and there, though not around the town square – mostly along Highway 281 north of downtown where Highway 72 branches off and runs northeast up a hill past the water tower and cemetery into the distant brush country. The old buildings flank the perimeter of the late 1950’s vintage, brick municipal building that sits nestled among tall, leafy pecan trees in the town’s main square.  Most were built in the 1920s and 30s. And some, as far back as 1913 when the town originated, still remain.
