When Col. Benjamin Wettermark emptied the bank and skipped town in 1903, he left his wife, his children and his mansion behind. “Saving the Oldest Town in Texas” looks at the banker, the house designed by the best architect in Nacogdoches and the impact Col. Wettermark’s betrayal had on the woman who loved him and the town that trusted him. 

Saving the Oldest Town in Texas is a finalist for the 2019 International Book Awards from American Book Fest!
