Gatesville 6K YRE Event
Coryell County




The walk start is the Gatesville Public Library.

Two "Statues of Liberty" and two "Statues of Justice" as well as an Eagle decorate the courthouse. These are all listed in the Smithsonian Inventory of Art Sculptures.

We crossed Main street and entered the courthouse to view the dome.

In the courthouse rotunda is a sculpture of James Coryell, Texas Ranger for whom the county was named.
The walk continues on to Raby Park with a nice creek running through it.

We walked through the park and reached the main entrance.

We walked through a residential district.

We entered the City Cemetery.

We did a circle through the cemetery and back out the same entrance.

Nice old Rock home.

We walked past the First Baptist Church built in 1936.

The walk passes the WPA built Post Office also built in 1936.

If you've got time you might want to go inside and view the WPA artwork completed in 1939.

After going back past the courthouse you continue to the Coryell County Museum. This spinning wheel is on display.

View of the Museum building on Main Street.
