Bringing the Grass House Back to Caddo Mounds State Historic Site
By Dana Goolsby
Alto, Texas- The Caddo Mounds State Historic Site has always held a certain degree of mystery and magic, but for me the site is also nostalgic. Just driving by the site on Highway 21 reminds me of the days from my childhood when my family would visit the Mounds. There’s just one thing missing. The iconic grass house that once stood tall and proud on the site now only exists in my memory… for now.
