2017 School House RunOn April 1st we will make the second Historic One-room Schoolhouse run. Each year the Friends of Gillespie County Historic Schools open several locations for public tour. This year we will visit five sites, including two we visited last year, along with a couple of historic churches. Schools will offer refreshments, restrooms and a history tour of their school.
We will meet at 9:30 and leave at 10:00 am from the Stripes gas station on highway 281, one mile south of Blanco. An afternoon lunch is planned at the Pecan Grove Historic Ice House just outside of Fredericksburg. Food is great and service is slow but the beer and wine are cold. Picnic tables overlook Marschall Creek where you can pitch washers, play pool or toss darts.
