The Blake House at Starr Family Home

In Big Thicket Legacy, authors Campbell and Lynn Loughmiller present the stories of people living in the Big Thicket of Southeast Texas. Many of the storytellers were close to 100 years old when interviewed, with some being the great-grandchildren of the first settlers. Tales include robbing a bee tree, hunting wild boar, plowing all day and dancing all night, wading five miles to church through a cypress brake, and making soap using hickory ashes.
