County tourism website makes lively Facebook opening
Limestone County’s new tourism website (visitlimestonecountytx.com) went online with a splash Thursday night during a kickoff event at Old Fort Parker, one of the high-profile historic sites featured on the website – which may just be the beginning of promoting tourism in the county.
About 45 people, including local dignitaries, well-wishers and other people from all over the county who had a hand in the development of the new website met in the Hinchliffe Visitors Center at Old Fort Parker to see a live, interactive showing of the website and its features.
Site Director Sarah McReynolds hosted and Ken Givens emceed, with input from Larry Smith, whom many credit with stepping in when former EDC Director Susan Cates left Limestone County to take a job elsewhere. McReynolds credited Cates for her vision in coming up with the idea of the tourism website. With Smith’s diligence and work, and also with help and funding by the county, the cities of Mexia and Groesbeck, and those cities’ respective Economic Development Corporations, the vision has become a reality.
