The old guard house kept watch for Indians back in 1833. However, in 1836 the Indians raided the Fort. Several settlers were killed and 2 year old Cynthia Parker was taken. Its an interesting story you can find on the Internet. Search for Fort Parker in Groesbeck Texas.

    Interesting bit of history, but the fort sure didn't help them against the Indians!

    I have heard about Cynthia Parker and Quannah Parker. A fascinating story. Great shot!
