    A Visit to Corbyn, Texas

    Photographer's Note
    This is the only trace of Corbyn I could find. The GPS was zoomed all the way in to 800 FEET, and it showed I was right on top of Corbyn. If I had to guess, the whole town was taken over by private folks. plenty of private property signs, and this is the building that was directly in the center of Corbyn. By the smell of things, and visual clues, this same building had just suffered a major fire not that long ago.....maybe a few days ago is all. Have no clue what this was, or what happened to Corbyn, Texas. - Stephen Michaels, January 09, 2008

    Subject: Corbyn, Texas
    I saw your little article on Corbyn, Texas... According to Mapquest it is located on Old Nacogdoches Road, just a little ways from the small community of Comal. The building in the photo was once a small power plant. I recall my dad saying that from when we first drove past it years ago. I'll look at the Texas Genweb for Comal County to see if they have more information, but for many small little towns, their histories are lost. - Holly Hilpert, September 19, 2012
