This morning Ann and I set out on another sightseeing adventure in Seguin. We stopped first at the Pape Pecan Company where we viewed some of the owner’s nutcrackers. He has several thousand in his collection, most of which have been moved to another location, where they will be on display sometime in the future. On a table there were a few nutcrackers for sale. I bought some candy and pecans. Yummy!
Then we went back downtown to visit some more historic sites. We enjoyed our time at the Seguin Heritage Museum, housed in what was originally the opera building. In addition to the usual local memorabilia, hey have a small collection of artifacts from the Wilson Pottery Archeological Site east of town. I was disappointed to learn that the archeological site is not currently open to visitors.
Before continuing our explorations, we had lunch at the Silver Center. The food was plenteous and tasty. We had a nice conversation with a man who is a volunteer at the center. He was full of interesting information. We then browsed their thrift shop but didn’t buy anything.
We stopped at, but were unable to go inside, several historic buildings: the oldest Protestant (Methodist) church in Texas (1849), the Campbell cabin (c. 1850), Los Nogales adobe house (1849) and doll house, and the Magnolia Hotel (c.1843). Sadly, the hotel is in poor condition.
