Bowie,TX

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!!
