Tarzan, Texas - J.B. McNerlin was the first settler in the area. In 1925 a two-room school was built, and soon after, Tant Lindsay built a store which, along with the school, formed the center of the community. In 1927 Lindsay submitted a list of possible town names to the post office department. Postal officials chose Tarzan and made Lindsay the first postmaster.
Love these. Been to several! The "Painted Churches" are a collection of 19th century churches in Central Texas. They were built by the Czech and German immigrants. The exteriors seem pretty plain, but the colorful interiors are beautifully painted.
