Wichita Falls Floral Heights Gold Dome Leads Me To Possible Turkey Trot
Apparently this is the day I get around to blogging about the Gold Dome.
Soon after taking this photo of the Gold Dome, hovering above a couple buildings which have seen better days, I turned a corner to learn the Gold Dome sits atop the Floral Heights Methodist Church.
I was not expecting the Gold Dome to sit atop a Methodist Church. I figured it might sit atop a mosque. Which would have been interesting. The Methodist Church under the Gold Dome is a mish mash of architectural styles, including a church entry with multiple tall columns which looked more like a courthouse than a church.
A short distance past the church I began seeing signage indicating I was in the Floral Heights Historical Neighborhood.
It's been multiple days and I have yet to learn why this neighborhood is named Floral Heights or why it is historical.
I did learn the neighborhood has a Historical Floral Heights Neighborhood Facebook page. But on that page I was only able to learn the Floral Heights Neighborhood has a lot of dog issues, garage sales, and community events, like turkey trots.
But nothing about why the neighborhood is named such or why it is historical.
And now I have the added mystery of figuring out what a turkey trot is.
The learning process is never ending....
