From the authors of the popular "Images of America: Winnsboro" book, comes a more comprehensive history of the small town of Winnsboro, Texas.
Compiled from the many articles Bill Jones has written for local publications, Reflections of Winnsboro tells the story of this area of East Texas from the beginning of civilization to the recent cultural renaissance of the town. It is all written with the same country charm you would experience if you met Bill at the local coffee shop and chatted over a cup of coffee.
If you like to stop in small towns and find out what makes them unique, you will enjoy this virtual visit to a town that was visited often by Bonnie & Clyde and was the home of the founders of the Bama Pie Company. The last Confederate soldier was also a visitor to Winnsboro, as were many famous singers, including Elvis Presley.
But what makes any town great are the everyday people who have their own stories to tell. Bill has done extensive research and interviews to bring those stories to light.
REVIEW OF IMAGES OF AMERICA WINNSBORO "This is a collection of the history of Winnsboro, Texas, a small town in East Texas, in pictures. The pictures are clear and the captions are well done. There is a book planned delving into the people and places in and around Winnsboro througout history by the same authors, and I am planning to buy that one, too." James Moyers
