Join author, Gary Pinkerton, at Caddo Mounds as he presents "Trammel's Trace: East Texas' First Road".

Along with an overview of the Trace and the man for which it is named, Nicholas Trammell, I'll explain how many of those who used the road also crossed along the El Camino Real just behind the mounds. Books will be available for sale and for signing, and I will stick around to talk history with anyone interested. 

You can learn more about Gary Pinkerton and his book Trammel's Trace: The First Road to Texas From the North at,

Come early to explore the mounds, see the new visitor center, and experience the grass house. You will be amazed.
