1890's Downtown Center


The quality of this photo is torn and was spliced to place on web.

Notice no cars.  The picture is taken from the top of a building on Nacogdoches looking down Shelbyville St.  Cora street is at the end of the first two story building.  Where the Payne building is today, was just a pasture.  There is a wooden fence around the Courthouse and Jail and has horses tied to the fence.
