It was a beautiful day in Oak Grove Estates, on January 16, 2021 with Impact Cares on ‘Project Day.’ Oak Grove is nestled in Kerrville, Texas, a beautiful community with a long history. Did you know it was almost 180 years ago that this land was first given to a soldier in honor of his having served in the Texas War of Independence in the 1830’s? Later, Joshua D. Brown, having bought the land, donated a portion to the county as the place of the new county seat of Kerr County. It was at this time the town was named ‘Kerrsville’ in honor of a friend named James Kerr. (It was sometime in the 1850’s when the ‘s’ was dropped from the name). After the Civil war, another immigrant, Joseph Tivy, settled and gave land so a school could be built. Today, the names of Joshua Brown, James Kerr and Joseph Tivy have long been forgotten but their legacy lives on in Oak Grove Estates. That legacy of being a neighbor, of giving, of lending a helping hand is still alive and well in this community. Impact Cares was privileged to be here during the first two weeks of this year and what a delight it was!Read more
