History comes alive with Lost Hope The Chisholm Trail Roundup Rodeo and Music Festival offers something for everyone - including those who like a little history with their entertainment. All day Saturday, take a trip back in time to Lost Hope, Texas - an Old West cattle town with a reputation for gruff gamblers, saucy showgirls and black-hearted villains as mean as gut-shot bears. Chaos reigns in the otherwise sleepy town while an over-extended City Marshall and a few kind-hearted barkeeps try to keep the peace - a mammoth task in the face of gamblers cheating at cards, showgirls stealing from poker players and various and sundry villains and drunks, cheating and stealing from everyone. Be careful in Lost Hope! Sometimes, even the innocent are caught in the crossfire as quarrels become bar brawls, and bar brawls become shootouts. The Lost Hope Gunfighters perform every one to two hours throughout Lockhart City Park. Performances start around 3 p.m. and continue until sunset.

Rodeo brings country back to the Chisholm Trail After several years of absence, the Rodeo came back to the Chisholm Trail with a bang last year. The Lockhart Chamber, along with dozens of rodeo sponsors, have been proud to partner with the Diamond Cross Rodeo Company to bring a full-scale rodeo to Lockhart, with a three-year commitment for it to continue. Last year, the CTR Rodeo won the prestigious “Best New Rodeo of the Year” award from the Cowboys’ Professional Rodeo Association. The rodeo is hosted in connection with the rest of the CTR events at Lockhart City Park, and final preparations for the arena are under way. The rodeo arena will over look the pond and parking area, in the “old softball field” near the pavilion “on the hill” at Lockhart City Park. In addition to pro-rodeo events, 20 local children each on Friday and Saturday will be invited to participate in the time-honored tradition of Mutton Bustin’, with all safety gear being provided by Diamond Cross.

Mutton busters should be 8 years or under, and weigh less than 60 pounds, and registration is available online at www.chisholmtrailroundup.com. On Thursday night, admission is free for the Slack Rodeo from 7:30 – 9:30 p.m.

On Friday, admission for the rodeo, which will go on from 7:30 – 9:30 p.m., will be $10 at the gate, or $8 with a CTR button or Trail Boss armband. Saturday’s events will run from 7 – 9 p.m., and will also be $10 at the gate, or $8 with a button or Trail

Boss armband. For more details on the rodeo, visit www.chisholmtrailroundup.com, or find Diamond Cross Rodeo Company online at https://www.facebook.com/DiamondCrossRodeoCompany

On Sunday classic car enthusiasts will showcase their rides in the Thump Car Show downtown. The Thump got its start in

1953 when community leaders wanted a venue to honor the local agricultural producers, namely tomatoes and watermelons at that time, and went to the Elementary school with a contest to name the event. The Watermelon Thump came out as the winner and folks have been thumping in Luling ever since. Now 61 years later the Thump has transformed into one of the most entertaining small town festivals in the great State of Texas. So put your watermelon duds on and join the fun at the 61st Annual Luling Watermelon Thump on June 26 - 29.

girl seeks a precarious livelihood as a schoolteacher, and the young man becomes a reluctant sailor. The banker, seeking not only to get the mine but the heroine as well, has spun a wicked web to ensnare them all. “Their Hearts Were Pure” opens with a “preview performance” on Thursday, June 12, and will continue on Friday and Saturday evenings at 8 p.m. through June 28. Matinee performances will be hosted on Sunday, June 22 and Saturday, June 28 at 2 p.m. The Gaslight-Baker Theatre company, housed in the historic Baker Theater in downtown Lockhart, with a “side-stage” events center next door, is one of Lockhart’s most precious jewels. Borne from the merger of two local theatre companies the Gaslight-Baker Theatre company is proud to boast a full production season, with live performances including comedies, dramas,

melodramas and musicals, every other month, throughout the year. Even in the off months, the Baker buzzes with entertainment, as the GBT hosts youth productions, concerts, variety and vaudeville shows, magicians, and a wide variety of local entertainment, in the main theater of the beautifully restored Baker Theater, once the community’s only moving picture theater. Drawing from a vast talent pool locally, and frequented by some of the most talented actors from across Central Texas, the Gaslight Baker offers a little bit more culture in the heart of the Chisholm Trail. For more information about the Gaslight-Baker Theatre, including upcoming events and productions, audition schedules and ticket prices, visit www.gaslightbakertheatre.org.

Lockhart boasts Texas History everywhere you look! The story of historic Lockhart is an ongoing tale of human endeavor, proudly nurtured by her citizens. Lockhart warmly invites you to sample its unique brand of small town hospitality. Step back into the past as you tour beautifully preserved buildings and homes and browse the antique shops. Stay for lunch or dinner. And while you’re exploring, visit some historical sites in Lockhart and the surrounding area: Battle of Plum Creek military site Lockhart State Park and environs are believed to be located within the

battle area, but archeological surveys of that area to date have produced no conclusive material remains relating to the battlesite. There is a Historical Marker commemorating the Battle of Plum Creek in Lion’s Park, on Highway 183 across from the HEB grocery store. Andrew Lee Brock Historical Marker (402 S. Colorado St.) Tennessee native Andrew Lee Brock (1830-1904) moved to Caldwell County in 1848, and he married Rebecca Montgomery Wayland. Two years later, Rebecca’s father gave the

couple a parcel of land on Boggy Creek as a wedding gift, and Brock built a log cabin on the site. Many of the twelve commercial buildings financed by Andrew Lee Brock remain in use today. In recent years, the Friends of the Brock Cabin have acquired funding and volunteer labor to restore this jewel in Lockhart’s history, which remains under construction at Lion’s Park, and is expected to open for public viewing later in 2014. Caldwell County Museum and Visitors Center (315 E. Market) Located in the historic Caldwell County Jail, the museum offers selfguided tours and guided tours throughout several exhibits embracing Caldwell County History. Dr. Eugene Clark Library (215 S. Main St.) Built in 1899 and dedicated on July 6, 1900, this library was financed with funds bequeathed by Dr. Clark, who was a prominent physician of Lockhart and San Antonio. It is the oldest continually-operational library in the State of Texas. Susanna Dickinson Hanning (308 W. San Antonio) At this site once stood the home of Susanna Dickinson Hannig (18141883), who came to Texas from Ten-

nessee in 1831 with her husband Almeron Dickinson. He died at the Battle of the Alamo on March 6, 1836. Susanna, with her daughter Angelina, was among the survivors. She carried news of the Alamo’s capture to Gen. Sam Houston, commander of the Texas Army. Susanna settled in Lockhart in 1855 and bought this property. Lockhart Vocational High School/Carver High School (1104 E. Market) Now located on private property, the “Old Carver School” was a project of The Rosenwald Foundation of Chicago, which funded many African American schools in the south in the early 20th century. The school district and local African American citizens raised the majority of the funds for its completion. In 1946, the facility changed its name to G.W. Carver High School. It closed in 1964 due to school integration. This list offers only a small sampling of the dozens of historical markers and points of inerest throughout Lockhart and Caldwell County. A full list of our historical markers can be found by visiting the guardians of our history, the Caldwell County Historical Commission at http://www.caldwellcountyhistoricalcommission.org.
