Floyd Inn location, Richardson, Texas

Description:

Large open field. In the foreground is a grouping of seven trees, with some shrubs or saplings, all growing in grass/weeds. Only the center tree, the one closest to the foreground, is leafed. Behind is a large open space, with cultivated areas visible on the horizon. On the left of the horizon is a large building, with a taller domed portion, part of Restland Cemetery.
The note on the back states that the tree was planted in 1856.

The Floyd Inn served as a stop for the stage from Dallas to Denton.
