The Big Pecan
Charlie Brown has the Great Pumpkin, we have the Big Pecan! Pecans are very popular around town. We have beautiful orchards all around us. There's a really nice place called the Pecan Bottom along the Guadalupe River (will try to get a good pic of that soon). The Big Pecan above is located prominently in front of our county court building. Locals and visitors often stop to take their pic with the BP. There's another big pecan outside the Pape's Pecan store but this is our official nut. ;) That store is really neat -- been around a long time and the owner has an incredible collection of nutcrackers and other nut-opening tools. I'll try to get a pic of that place one day. It's pretty cool. Even if you're not a nutcracker fan.
