This year Thanksgiving has brought me home to the area in Texas where I was born and raised. Seeing siblings is the best and spending time laughing and carrying on like we did as youngsters is great. We have been checking out the old haunts. It has been great. Today we spent part of the day at the DeLeon Ranch. This is a ranch on part of the original DeLeon Land Grant of about 1824. It is in the town of Victoria, Texas. The Ranch house was built by a granddaughter of Don Martin DeLeon and has raised 5 generations. It belongs to my cousins and they are in the process of remodeling it. The walls are the original wood walls and nails in the walls from 1901 when it was built. I love this house and remember so many family gatherings.
The walls with a white wash over them.
Another room with just high gloss sealant.
Everything they are doing is being done as it was in 1901. They have had to have all the windows rebuilt with the weights in side the windows to open them and keep them open.
This was an amazing day. Thank you for letting me share.
