Robertson County, Texas - Index of Landmarks & Vanished Communities

Tips on using this index:

1.     Scroll or use your browser "find" function to search this Index for a particular feature name or location.

2.     Copy the Latitude and Longitude of your selected feature on a piece of paper for later reference. ( 311613N is 31° 16’ 13”  and 0953747W is 95° 37’ 47” – drop the leading 0  )

3.     Click on the name of the feature to view a map of the county. (Features submitted by other than USGS will appear immediately and no more action on you part to locate your feature.)

4.     Note that as you move the cursor across the map that the latitude and longitude of the cursor is given in boxes on the left side of the page.

5.     Move the cursor to display the latitude and longitude you recorded in step 2, and then left click. This click will center your selected feature in the center of the map. This is the location of your selected feature. If the copied lat & long is given in decimal degrees (31.78923) select DD.DD in the coordinates box directly under the Lat & long boxes.

6.     Note that you can Zoom In or out by clicking on the Zoom  + or at the bottom of the map, and that clicking on the red corner markers move the entire map.

7.     Items submitted by sources other than the USGS show approximate locations only. They have not been surveyed but usually are given to editor as verbal or written descriptions.

  1. Locations of creeks & streams are given at the mouth of the creek or stream, i.e. where it joins a larger stream.

Wootan Wells

TX

Robertson

vanished community

31.1388
-96.722

Wootan Wells was a mineral water spa/community in the late 1800s and into the early 1900s, founded by the Wootan family, primarily Francis Marion Wootan, whose brother Israel was my great-grandfather. I have considerable historical information about Wootan Wells and will be glad to share it. It was written up extensively, with photos, by the Waco newspaper in the 1960s, in a retrospective. The place burned down and finally closed forever @ 1920. It had a bottling plant, its own mule-drawn railcar to connect with the main line at Hammond Switch, a few miles south of Bremond on Hwy6, for bringing in visitors and others who wanted to "take the waters". Only a Texas State Historical Sites sign today marks the spot along Hwy 6. The coordinates are approximate, based on Bremond's. Following are sources that might help the serious researcher. First, there is a lengthy article by Janet Mace Valenza, "Wootan Wells, Texas," in The New Handbook of Texas, Vol. 6 (Austin: Texas State Historical Association, 1996), 1073-1074. She gives the following bibliography for the site: J. W. Baker, History of Robertson County, Texas (Franklin, Texas: Robertson County Historical Survey Committee, 1970. Dallas Morning News, February 17, 1948. Peggy Joyce Florida, "The Swan Song of Wootan Wells," in True West, February 1967. Richard Denny Parker, Historical Recollections of Robertson County, Texas (Salado, Texas: Anson Jones, 1955.
