Bastrop in Bastrop County, Texas — The American South (West South Central)
The Gotier Trace
Like most early Texas roads, this was only a marked route which travelers could follow—dusty in droughts, boggy in rains.
From such traces, wagon roads and cattle trails, Texas has developed over 67,000 miles of fine paved highways—a system recognized as nation's finest.
Erected 1967 by Texas State Historical Survey Committee. (Marker Number 9190.)
