-A A +A

A historic farm in Independence, passed on from the Fulton family to the Fant family, will soon feature a newly-rebuilt and rehabilitated crib barn; a structure that dates back to the 1800s

INDEPENDENCE — This week, we celebrated the history of our country with Independence Day parades, festivals and fellowship; but for Grayson County, recognition and preservation of history is a year-round observance. Here, there is no shortage of resources for historians who devour local history. Diaries, letters, photographs, artwork and songs are just a few of the ways we can peer into the past. Then there are the larger examples: houses, farms, and other historical buildings offer an intimate look into the lives of our ancestors.
