The Snake Rail Fence history goes back to early America. Traditionally they were made from American chestnut. Today, most newly constructed fences are cedar.
During the American Civil War, they were a major source of firewood. Because there were no nails or hardware used in the construction, they could be easily moved.
Now For The Rest of The Story......
I pass this fence on every trip I make into town. It is located in a Rest Stop maintained by the Texas Department of Transportation.
Wouldn't you like to take a rest here and have lunch?
Today I'm joining with Jan n' Jer's Fridays Fences. Be sure and check out their blog.
