Ozona, Texas

Leaving Kerrville we re-joined I10 and headed west, stopping at Ozona, ‘the biggest little town in the world’ according to the sign to fill up with fuel and coffee.

Ozona is in Crockett County which was created from Bexar County in 1875 and named in honour of Davy Crockett who died at the Alamo.

After our coffee we drove into the centre of town to have a look at the Day Crockett Memorial on the plaza.

We’d been told that Ozona Museum is well worth visiting, but unfortunately it was closed when we were there.

There are some very interesting old buildings around the plaza, one of which was the Ozona National Bank, although I don’t know if it’s still open.

There seems to be a lot of interesting history in Ozona and the surrounding areas

Have fun, we are!
