History in a Pecan Shell

Little is known of Broomtown except that it once produced brooms. The town is now ironically in the “dustbin” of history, except for the postal information obtained from John Germann’s extensive collection of postal covers and postmarks.


Texas Escapes, in its purpose to preserve historic, endangered and vanishing Texas, asks that anyone wishing to share their local history and vintage/historic photos, please contact us.
