The Garner houses: A part of Uvalde history

The younger generations of Uvalde are probably familiar with Garner Field, Garner State Park, and the Briscoe-Garner Museum, now housed where former vice-president John Nance Garner once lived. However, those born in the 1960s and later might not be familiar with the Garner houses. In fact, they may be living in one of these historical houses and not know it. I not only was born in one of these houses on Nopal Street, but my family lived in two different Garner houses in later years, one on North East Lane and another on East School Lane.
