On a recent trip to Albany we visited Bank Park. It is on Main Street and easy to find. There are several items of interest in the park that should be seen. First to greet you is a longhorn steer made of metal and it really interesting and OK..cute. There is also a monument that pays back a debt to Georgia for supporting Texas during its struggle for independence. Many of the Georgians were killed with the Texans in the battle of Goliad. One was spared, who was a doctor and the country was named for him - Dr John Shackelford. The debit was left unpaid until Albany citizens built the monument. Also in the part is the Ledbetter Picket House which is a classic example of frontier picket construction. It is called a dog trot house and is a standing example of frontier homes on the West Texas prairie.
