Teague… That’s right, Teague is a great destination for locating vintage items, antiques, gently used and some good ol’ junk.
Teague, as noted in a previous edition of the Texas Farm & Home, began it’s life as a railroad town and has held on to its roots over the hundred years or so.
Teague boasts an excellent railroad museum — the B-RI Railroad Museum, located inside a beautifully restored depot, reminding guests of the golden age or rail travel.
The museum features a static steam train display, plus numerous artifacts from the history of Teague and Freestone County.
Four antique stores located in this small town, located a few miles west of Interstate-45, along U.S. Highway 84. The stores feature a vast array of antique items, vintage jewelry, retro clothing, gifts and home decor.
Junkin’ for Joy; Ladonna’s Yoakum Place; The Lazy Texan Trading Company, which features a variety of booths inside this antique mall; and the Teague Thrift Store featuring used and retro household items and antiques.
With the Teague Thrift Store, all proceeds of the sales go to the Teague Historical Preservation Society and its efforts to keep and preserve the historic downtown Teague area, with a specific focus on an old hotel located near the B-RI Railroad Museum.
If you are going to be in Teague in late June, then don’t miss the 88th annual Teague Rodeo, held at the Teague City Park Arena.
The rodeo is set for June 29, 30 and for July 1. The rodeo begins at 8 p.m. all three evenings. Events feature wild cow milking, bull riding, ranch bronc riding, bareback riding, barrel racing, calf roping, team roping, breakaway roping and more.
