On this week’s episode of The Texas Bucket List a delightful Dutch windmill, a drive-in diner that’s hasn’t changed since 1958, and south Texas faith healer that is a generational tradition.
Our first stop is at the Nederland Texas Windmill Museum, which has more to offer than just the scaffolding of windmills of old. This museum holds the winds of history for the town, from its native Hollanders that first braved the Texas heat to their wooden shoes in which they worked the fields.
Driving into the Malt Shop in Weatherford, we traveled back to a time when cars with chrome and poodle skirts reigned supreme. They’ve even got quite the cheeseburger and malt that have remained as fixtures of good eats from back in the day.
Lucas Eason sings “Sixth and Trinity” at Cheatham Street Warehouse in San Marcos and we close thins out with south Texas legend. The shrine of Don Pedrito in Falfurrias has been a site for folks to come and pray or meditate for healing since his death in 1907. Known as a local faith healer, some say that he continues to heal and alleviate the pains those who visit the shrine today.
