July 7, 1967. Lady Bird records a trip to Lockhart, Texas (self-proclaimed BBQ capital of the world) in her diary:
"The whole visit to Lockhart filled me with pride, that this little Texas town of of six thousand population had the spark and the get-up-and-get to make the most of its Court House square. The focal point of the square is the old white limestone Victorian-style Court House, described by Mr. Zisman, the restoration architect, as ‘a structure ugly enough to be beautiful.’ There must be at least one hundred Court Houses in Texas of this vintage, built in the 1890s—unbelievable accumulations of turrets, towers, domes, gingerbread, columns, and carvings."
