Sara is also doing a giveaway on her blog tour so read on for your chance to win!
So, without further ado, we delve into the wild west...
Welcome to Colton, Texas!
Forest County gets its name from the oak forests that covered the land along the creeks running through it, but the majority of the land is grassland. Colton comes from the shortening of the original name for the cattle town Cole’s Town. The frontier town was nothing more than a Southern Baptist Church, a general store, a one room school, and the all important saloon. The large oak tree in the center of the town eventually became the spot for the courthouse. Fitting, considering it was from the massive branches the town’s founders hung anyone who questioned their law.
Today, the saloon is still standing and is still an important outlet after a long day to catch a beer and to listen to the local band. Several other churches joined the Baptists, and the educational system includes the small university, Colton College. And the old oak tree still stands before the courthouse as a reminder of Wild West justice.
