began work in earnest. The committee was informally headed by William Henry
Harrison, who functioned as the book's editor.
1-15. Entrance to Highland Park Eagle Lake, Texas. [Eagle Lake, 1910] 40 pages.
Softbound. Promotional brochure for a recently-laid-out subdivision in Eagle
Lake, with many photographs and a fine map of the subdivision.
1-16. Flachmeier, Jeanette Hastedt. A Rose in Texas. Austin, 1986. 31 pages.
Softbound. Biography of Dilue Rose Harris, who lived in Colorado County for
much of her life, but whose importance lies in the recollections she wrote of her
adventures in other places. Those interested in Harris would do far better to read
her own reminiscences.
1-17. Frelsburg Historical Committee. The History of Frelsburg Kraewinkel [Crow's
Nest]. New Ulm, Texas: New Ulm Enterprise, 1986. 44 pages. Softbound. A
brief, confused look at German settlement in the northern part of the county,
consisting chiefly of limited, disorderly, family history, valuable as the only
attempt at a comprehensive history of the community.
1-18. Green, Rowan. Colorado County, Texas: Its Health, Climate, Soil, Advantages
and Resources. Columbus: Colorado Citizen, 1877. 34 pages. Softbound.
Reprint. Nesbitt Memorial Library Journal, volume 4, number 2, May 1994,
pages 51-73. High praise for the county on the eve of its heyday, written by a
real estate salesman. The reprint adds a brief introduction and an appendix.
1-19. Harrison, William Henry. Alleyton, Texas "Back Door to the Confederacy."
Alleyton: Show Me Type & Print, 1993. 250+ pages. Hardbound. One of the
many recent community histories, crammed, like most, with useful information
and photographs but severely impaired by the absence of an index. The author,
an Alleyton native, transcribes some primary source material and contributes
some recollections of his own.
1-20. Heine, Dorothy Jean. Come, Reminisce With Me. A History of Glidden, Texas
1885-1985. 1985. 151 pages. Hardbound. An attractively-packaged commu-
nity history, about half of which is given over to family history, but, like so many
other similar publications, with no index. This book is quite well researched, but
the author has difficulty molding the pieces into a cohesive history.
1-21. Hinton, Mary. Weimar, Texas First 100 Years 1873-1973. Austin: Von Boeck-
mann-Jones Company, 1973. 339 pages. Hardbound. Softbound copies also
exist. This is the first of a number of Colorado County community histories that
were published over a twenty-year period, and it apparently set the pattern for
them. Like the succeeding volumes, this one takes a scattershot approach that
