“Of the many ghost towns in Texas, none died as tragic a death as Indianola.” Join us today as we examine the amazing history of Indianola, the Queen City of Texas. In only 45 years, this town on Texas coast went from a tiny drop off point for the German settlements to become the second largest port in the state before its tragic descruction from two terrible hurricanes. Today it is only a wind swept historical site and fishing pier, but Texas will never forget the city that became know as “The Mother of Western Texas”.

Before we begin… Who’s a fascinating Texas politician?
