The Hanging Tree

A little bit of old west still lives in the shadow of today's downtown skyscrapers.

Legend has it, that this over 400 year old oak tree was the site of at least eleven hangings during the years of the Republic of Texas, and is also reported to be the oldest tree in Harris County.

Hang 'em high...

  1. I love old trees like this. Just to sit under it and listen.
