On the Courthouse Square, Alpine
Yesterday, a big crowd celebrated Brewster County's 125th anniversary on the courthouse square in Alpine, followed by a community barbecue lunch.  During the ceremony, early settlers and ranchers were acknowledged, and a history of the county was cited.  Dignitaries, proclamations, enthusiasm and pride of our heritage were all a part of the beautiful day.  Thanks to the Brewster County Historical Commission for putting on such a great event!
