Historic and unique structures of America and bits of Americana

These buildings are a collection of structures that were of some interest to me as I traveled around Texas and indeed, America. Most are historic in the sense that they have been there for many years and were the linchpins of the community when it was first settled. In many cases they have been designated by the state of national historic society as worthy of note and conservation.
