Glen Rose Off The Beaten Path: 4 reviews and 8 photos
Granbury is an excellent little town to visit, full of history and legend and wonderfully restored architecture. It has been billed as the town “Where Texas History Lives”.
The Square around the courthouse was the first in Texas to be listed on the National Register of Historic Places. Since then, many other projects all over American have been modelled on their restoration efforts. There is still an old fashioned drive-in movie theatre which show first run movies over the summer weekends. Many of the wonderful old homes in Granbury are now B & B’s making Granbury a popular ‘get away from it all’ destination especially as many of them are set on Lake Granbury. The lake was formed from a dam being built across the Brazos River at De Cordova Bend.
There are many legends and stories about Granbury – of Jesse James, Davy Crockett and John Wilkes Booth. Sightseeing around the Granbury area is also popular with many places just a short drive away.
