Yesterday I was out in Rockne TX taking a picture of a home that is about to close for one of my Buyers. Cute little vintage home!
While I was in the area I took a few minutes to stop in the Rockne Museum. I had driven by it for many years always in a hurry. Yesterday I made myself stop and I was so glad I did.
There are some amazing old buildings that have been reconstructed and moved there. I enjoyed walking around them and thinking on how life must have been back in those days.
Then I headed over to the Hilbig Museum which was closed to see what the hours were and that is where I saw a bust of Newt Rockne. Unfortunately my picture didn’t turn out of it ( drat I have to go back lol). That is how I learned that Rockne got it’s name from the kids that were attending the Sacred Heart school back in 1931. They were given the opportunity to vote on a name and they voted to name it after Rockne as he had recently perished in a plane crash. Who knew!
If you you are ever in Bastrop County and at all interested in history take a little time to drive out to Rockne! Texas has some awesome history! And, if you are looking to buy or sell real estate in or around Rockne please give me a call ( Deb 512-743-0516 ) I would love to help you!

My husband and I love to kayak. A few weeks ago we went to the North Shore Park of Lake Bastrop for a paddle. Thought I would share some pictures and information about the park and lake. There is day use, and overnight camping. There are RV spots and also small cabins to rent. You can fish the lake with a license. There is a nice swim beach, and sand volleyball court. The restrooms have shower facilities. There are a couple of pavillions for parties, and picnic sites with grills.
