Near Claude in Armstrong County, Texas — The American South (West South Central)
Roadside Park on Hamblen Drive
Hamblen and his wife Ada (1883 - 1955) ranched near Wayside after 1905. He worked unceasingly to get a passable road through Palo Duro. Elected county commissioner in 1928, he at last had a graded road built. By decision of the commissioners' court, road was dedicated in 1930 as Hamblen Drive. With its paving in 1954, a dream of a lifetime was realized.
Erected 1968 by State Historical Survey Committee. (Marker Number 4284.)
