History is all around us, every single day. Many times, people consider history to be a part of some grand design with the world that doesn’t impact us very much – such as the countless wars in America, the California gold rush, or even the pyramids in Egypt. However, this couldn’t be more incorrect. In fact, history is extremely important. Not only on a grand level but on a local level as well. You can see a glimpse of Texas history when you visit the Starr Family Home State Historic Site.
