Sam Houston Camped Here

In my committment to painting daily, I sought out this historic preverve in Dallas County called Grapevine Springs.  Today it is surrounded by urban growth, but it was at one time part of a vast wilderness.  In 1843 Sam Houston camped here while negotiating a treaty with local Native Americans. 

The rock wall in the foreground was built by the Works Progress Administration in 1938.
