I think they are trying to bring the town back to life. With Don's current album out, its going to help their town when visitors come to see the place where Don lives.

As I was in Linden, they were talking about fixing up old historical landmark. A few months before I went to Linden, the water tower was on the verge of being tore down, but if it wasn't for Don paying to have people do a survey on the tower and the people of Linden rallying together to save it, it would had been tore down. So a foundation in Linden is doing everything to try to fix old historic building. The water tower and the old fire station in front of the tower is being fixed up. When I was there, they were starting work on fixing up the water tower.

Shun, I need to get in touch with your tour guide. When I went down there Saturday everyone had pretty much "closed up shop". Of course that might be because it was Saturday. But I would like to return and have a tour and talk with someone that's in the know. That would be cool.

It was only a year ago today, I drove the 4 and an half hours out of the way to Linden to see Don's birthplace. IT was soo worth it even though I was super tired from driving 6 more hours to Missouri.

Like I said in another thread. I'm thinking about going back to Linden and also see Caddo Lake in January when I head to Houston to see Don.

Today is the one year anniversary of my trip to Texas to see my very first Don show in Austin and Houston. I definitely wasn't disappointment.

I started my 4 day trip to Texas by seeing Don's hometown again. This time I stayed the night in Atlanta which was about 15 to 20 minutes north of Linden. Sadly again. I didn't get to go to Caddo Lake. I left Mississippi a little late and I was meeting someone at a certain time. I didn't get to cruise Caddo Lake.

I forgot to post these pictures last year, but I guess its never late than never.

Almost there!










The famous water tower that was saved.












The famous shed and the steps Don sat on in one of his Cass County pictures.


Don's old high school.


Music City Texas Theater(formerly the American Legion building). A place where Don played a lot when he was a kid. I didn't get to go in this time. They were closed.
