Participants will meet at the museum's north parking lot and we will leave at 8:30 a.m. in our own vehicles. Maps will be provided, and a staff member will also guide drivers to the site. The site is about 30 minutes from Belton, TX, between Florence and Salado. The cost is $10 per person made payable to The Gault School.
