King County Historical Markers
KING COUNTY MARKER NUMBER - 3
Guthrie is the county seat of King County and where all three markers are located. King county is named for William Phillip King who died at the Alamo. We were there on a Sunday and there was nothing happening, except for this pretty courthouse it could of been a ghost town it was very still. Part of what I like to do, when we are on the road is get a Christmas ornament from each county we visit, in this very rural county that is difficult effort and a Sunday it is impossible, so maybe one day if we pass through, we can stop at the 6666 Supply Store and grab one of there 6666 Christmas bauble. This county has the fewest number of markers we have come across and is the second least populated county in Texas. The last Markers was added in 1965 so I surmise that they do not have a terribly active historical commission or the just don't have the money to add additional markers.
