Almost a ghost town but not yet and maybe never. This is a picture from John's hometown Charlotte, Texas. No not named after Charlotte, North Carolina. A doctor named the town after one of his daughters. It has been a long time since the town claimed their own doctor. Maybe back in the days when Suitcase Jones was the town bum. Many years ago the train did run through but all that is left is this railroad car which served as a busy convience store. It has been for sale for years with no takers. A large convience store company built a store which took all their business. They have one beauty shop, one store, three churches (Catholic, Methodist, and Baptist), a post office, school, several Mexican food cafes at any given time, and that is about it. There are a lot of old buildings not fit to stand any longer. This was a booming oil town at one time. I'm told there were three or four beer joints in successon in the middle of town. Now there are none. One brave soul built a large bar and grill which lasted about a year and has been rented for office space for some of the oil business coming through our county now. They say (whoever they is) Charlotte is going to rise again and boom. Another brave soul has taken a piece of mesquite tree infested land and cut makeshift roads trying to sell lots for homes. Maybe this little town will make it and maybe it will remain the way it is.
