When you drive through a town named for a famous person & there is a park with statues,stopping should have been required. So on my way to Frisco a few weeks ago I went through Bowie, TX. Ok, the sign says he was from Kentucky & was never actually in the area. But people obviously admired him enough to name a Texas town after him in 1881. The reasons they chose him are not noted in the park…guess they just liked him & the big knife he carried. It was described as 9 1/2″ long, a quarter inch thick & 1 1/2 inches wide, with a simple wood handle.
The town apparently commissioned a really big, Guinness World Record winning replica in 2016.
I saw, I stopped, I photographed, I blogged. Here you go!!
