Notes on the Geography of The Western United States: Glen Rose and Las Colinas: Photo 1

world pictures The Western United States: Glen Rose and Las Colinas

Glen Rose, population about 2,500, is about 40 miles southwest of Fort Worth.  The nearest Wal-Mart Supercenter is in Cleburne, 25 miles to the northeast and with 30,000 people.

Glen Rose is the seat of tiny Somervell County, formed in 1876 from a 200-square-mile slice of Hood County.  Despite its diminutive size, the county put up this sturdy limestone courthouse in the 1890s. It remains the biggest building in town. The sensibly modest tower is a reconstruction, erected after a tornado in 1902 removed its predecessor.
