Title:
Pass for the Woodlake Casino, Summer Season 1902

Author:

Place:
Woodlake, TX

Publisher:

Date:
1902

Description:

Printed ticket or pass on paper, measuring 6.5x10.5 cm. (2½x4¼"). Some autograph writing designating that the ticket belongs to A.A. Krause.

In 1901 local businessman J.P. Crearer built a resort and recreational park in an area where natural springs form a small lake. Over the next two decades Woodlake flourished as a popular summer retreat with a variety of activities, including a casino. Here we have a pass for a gambler in the casino's early days. It was described as a palatial Victorian casino, and it no longer stands today; it was torn down in 1929. Great piece of ephemera from a popular Texas summer destination.
