Christine Jones works among a historic home in a pasture in the unincorporated community of Mound in Coryell County.

CORYELL COUNTY — About 15 minutes outside of Gatesville, in an otherwise nondescript pasture in Mound, what remains of the original home of OT Tyler stands silently, albeit a little precariously, amidst the natural landscape of stubborn undergrowth, clusters of wildflowers, sprays of prickly pear cactus and the shelter of oak and pecan trees.

This place, and the stories it could tell, may have crumbled quietly away without notice, were it not for the scholarly dedication and creativity of Christine Jones, an assistant professor in the Social Sciences Department of the College of Arts and Sciences at Texas A&M University-Central Texas.
