Walker Fore, Wood County, TX - late 1800s

DISCLAIMER: I DO NOT RESEARCH THE FORE SURNAME. I am simply reporting information that appeared in an article on Wood County, Texas in the 8/18/2008 issue of the LONGVIEW NEWS-JOURNAL, an area newspaper:

CHALYBEATE SPRINGS
LOCATION: Texas 11 and County Road 4350, three miles east of Winnsboro.
HISTORY: First were known as Musgrove Springs, they were later called Chalybeate Springs for the high iron content in the water. They gave rise to a resort community. The village included a school, churches, stores and a post office. WALKER FORE bought the springs property in the 1880s and built a two-story hotel and spa. The hotel closed in 1895 and the building was razed in 1935.

Hope this helps someone in their genealogy research.
