This photo of the Woodmen Circle of King Willow Texas from around the turn of the century comes from a scan of a vintage cabinet card found at a garage sale in Tatum Texas.

King Willow, a rural community three miles east of Emhouse in north central Navarro County, was first settled after theĀ Civil War. It is said to have been named after a large willow tree. A Methodist church was constructed there in the early 1890s, and in 1894 a post office opened. By 1896 the town had Methodist and Methodist Episcopal churches, a corn mill and cotton gin, and an estimated population of fifty-five. In 1907 the Trinity and Brazos Valley Railway bypassed King Willow three miles to the west. Most of the businesses and residents moved to the newly established town of Emhouse on the railroad, and by 1910 King Willow had been abandoned.

How do we scan our slides, negatives, and photos?

We use an Epson Perfection V600 Film, Negative & Document Scanner

If you are looking for an all in one negative/slide/photo scanner look no further. This thing is great. There is a brief learning curve and you need to experiment with all the settings and how to use the included holders. Also, when working with negatives and slides dust is not your friend. Compressed air and a soft brush are helpful.
