Peter's Colony 1841

Bird's Fort Trail carried settlers from Ft. Inglish in Bonham to Bird's Fort near Irving, and traversed Peter's Colony from 1842-1849.  The trail intersected Preston Trail, near the current day Preston Road, near the Addison area.  The trail traveled along a creek to current day Farmers Branch, from the Preston Road crossing.  It is along this creek, that my assistant and I discovered a scattering of Bois d'arc trees, amid the modern buildings.  As the hustle and bustle of big city life carried on around us, we stopped for these photos.
