Dr. Harold Nolte acquired decades of experience in educational administration at community colleges in Texas, and recently came out of retirement to accept the post of president of Dodge City Community College in Kansas. While residing in Texas, Harold Nolte was a supporter of Washington on the Brazos State Park.
Known as the “Birthplace of Texas,” Washington on the Brazos State Park is where the 59 American delegates declared Texas’ independence from Mexico in 1836. Now with a visitor center, Star of the Republic Museum, Barrington Living History Farm, hiking trails, and more, Washington on the Brazos is a historical tourist attraction with plenty to see and do.
On the Wildflower Loop trail, visitors may be delighted to find plenty of bluebonnets, the state flower of Texas, blooming in the spring. With the bluebonnet’s sweet scent and other flowers, butterflies, and songbirds enjoying the park, Washington on the Brazos is a great place to become one with nature while basking in Texas history.
