A Look Inside

Architecture, Edgewood, Historic Site, Old Downtown, Photography

The town of Edgewood, Texas, began in 1878.  The original downtown setting hasn’t been having a lot of changes.  Some old buildings were restored and functional, some are being maintained awaiting for an opportunity to be restored.  The stories of the beginning era of the town are told and kept in several local publications, such as “The Edgewood Story” by Authula M. McLemore & Eloise Pettigrew Ellis.

Here’s a look inside a building, which used to be a physician and dentist’s office in early 1900’s in Edgewood, Tx.  Hopes and ideas to restore the interior has been expressed.  In the mean time, the wallpaper and layers of paints on the walls whisper the stories and tales of what were going on inside this building long before my time.
