A Little Time in Coupland

Coupland, Texas, according to the 2014 census, has a population of 298 people.  But for such a tiny dot on the map of southeastern Williamson County, Texas, it packs in a lot of charm.   Tonight’s photos were taken over three days.  They are not photojournalistic, but perhaps they are impressions?   Maybe.  I’ll touch on a few things in this post, including the opening photo, showing the town’s main thoroughfare, with the almost 100 year-old Coupland Inn and Dance Hall on the left.   The red facade with the tree’s reflection provides another look at that same place.  And there’s the old mill area across the tracks, plus the Coupland Volunteer Fire Department, its flags flying nicely in an evening breeze.  A couple of images include Coupland’s little red caboose, being renovated with the goal of becoming a children’s museum.  Already redone, in front of the caboose, is the depot.  My odd shot of it was taken through a window.  The red at left is another view of the inn and dance hall.   And the free lending library in front of the depot.  Finally, a photo of St. Peter’s Church of Coupland, photographed earlier this evening.  There’s more, but that’s for another time.
