Ghost Town Adventure: Kelsey, TX

I decided to take a detour today to put an interesting place in the spotlight; a major local Mormon settlement that faded out once the railroad changed direction. I wasn’t able to get everything due to unforeseen circumstances, so this post will be mostly images.

The inside of the schoolhouse itself is a goldmine of local history and early 20th century living, but I was unable to find the groundskeeper to see inside. I remember seeing such goodies as a gas-powered clothes iron and kitchen equipment, as well as a small bed and children’s books.
