For years, the town stayed the same size and even the names stayed the same. It was the same families who have lived there for generations. Working hard at raising cattle or scraping out a living at whatever jobs cme along. The families recycled the names of grandparents and such, so not even the first names changed.
Now, the 'others' have found it. The weather is great, the traffic is nothing, so all the retiring baby boomers are moving in. They hate the smell of cows and horses, they are disgusted by the stock trailers left parked on the road, they want the same plants and trees they left behind in Houston and Dallas, and they want the same services as they got in those urban swamps.
It used to be either Stone Village motel or Indian Lodge if you wanted a room. Now, the Limpia Hotel has aquired homes all over town, so you can get a room there or a home to stay at. The competition is big now, Harvard Hotel, Harvard Lodge, the Veranda, and about 2 dozen other lodges. Most of that is thanks to the Prudes. They expanded on their guest ranch and summer camp. That popularity brought in the tourists.
