U.S. Route 183
U. S. Route 183 is a north–south United States highway. US 183 was the last U. S. Route to be paved; the 20-mile segment in Loup County, north of Taylor, was unpaved until 1967. The highway's southern terminus is in Refugio, Texas, at the southern intersection of U. S. Highway 77 and Alternate US 77, its northern terminus is in Presho, South Dakota, at an intersection with Interstate 90. US 183 and Alt US 77 overlap for their final 80 miles between Refugio. US-183 begins in Refugio, sharing a multiplex with US-77A; the two highways continue north through Goliad County. US-183 crosses I-10 south of the town of Luling; the largest city that US-183 passes through is Austin, where it is a limited access highway. Northwest of Austin, US-183 passes through the suburbs of Cedar Park and Leander, where the 183A toll road runs parallel to it. In Lampasas County, US-183 shares a multiplex with US-190 between the towns of Lometa. US-183 shares a multiplex with US-84 from Goldthwaite in Mills County to Early in Brown County.
It crosses I-20 in Texas. US-183 enters a multiplex with US-283 in Throckmorton County, both highways share a multiplex with US-277 and US-82 in Baylor County from Seymour to Mabelle. In Wilbarger County, US-183 exits the multiplex with US-283 and turns east with US-70 to share a wrong way concurrency with US-287 between the towns of Vernon and Oklaunion. US-183 continues north sharing a multiplex with US-70. US 183/US 70 enters Oklahoma by crossing the Red River 3 miles south of Davidson, OK. In Davidson, US 70 splits from US 183; this continues as US 183 passes US 62 and BUS 62 in Snyder, OK. About 62 miles north of Snyder, US 183 crosses Interstate 40 at Interstate 40's exit 66. Another 47 miles US 183 co-signs with US 270 near Seiling, OK. US 183/US 270 continue in a northwesterly direction for 32 miles before picking up US 412 in Woodward, OK. US 183/US 270/US 412 leave Woodward in a due west fashion for a short time, until heading northwest again for 15 miles, at which time US 270 and US 412 leave US 183 near Fort Supply, OK to form their own duplex through the panhandle of Oklahoma as US 270/US 412.
US 183 continues north from the southern Harper County line to the Oklahoma/Kansas state line for a total of about 31 miles before leaving the state. US-183 enters Kansas in Clark County and turns east at Sitka, where it begins a multiplex with US-160, entering Comanche County, where it passes through Protection; the highways stay paired as it turns north to pass through Coldwater. At Coldwater, US-160 turns back to the east, US-183 continues its northerly track. Entering Kiowa County, US-183 reaches a junction with the multiplexed east–west route, US-54 and US-400, where it passes through Greensburg. In southern Edwards County, the highway makes a brief turn to the west before meeting up with US-56 in Kinsley, the Edwards County seat. US-56 and US-183 turn northeast before the highways split after entering Pawnee County. US-56 continues northeast toward Larned, US-183 straightens out to pass through unpopulated areas in Edwards County. In Rush County, US-183 intersects two primary east–west Kansas state highways, K-96 in Rush Center and K-4 in LaCrosse.
US-183 reaches the largest city along its route in Kansas, where a western bypass of the highway provides direct access to Gross Memorial Coliseum and Fort Hays State University. US-183 contains numerous businesses. US-183 runs through town for three miles before crossing Interstate 70, traveled in Hays with traffic between Denver and Kansas City; the interchange of US-183 and I-70 has been designated as the CW2 Bryan J. Nichols Fallen Veterans Memorial Interchange. North of Hays, the highway has been resurfaced and realigned for 23 miles to Plainville, one of two towns in Rooks County US-183 serves. At Plainville, US-183 has a junction with K-18. US-183 continues 15 miles north to the Rooks County seat, where US-24 crosses; the highway enters Phillips County 12 miles north of Stockton. US-183 meets US-36 west, the highways join for a multiplex through the city of Phillipsburg; the highways split in downtown Phillipsburg, US-183 has one last junction with K-383 before exiting the state south of Alma, Nebraska.
US-183 is two-laned throughout Kansas, except for the portion. U. S. Highway 183 enters Nebraska south of Alma, it enters Alma after crossing Harlan County Lake and the Republican River and runs concurrent with U. S. Highway 136 north out of Alma. After separating from US 136, US 183 continues north to Holdrege, where it intersects U. S. Highway 6 and U. S. Highway 34. US 183 continues north from Holdrege and intersects Interstate 80 south of Elm Creek shortly after crossing the Platte River, it proceeds north into Elm Creek and meets U. S. Highway 30. US 183 intersects Nebraska Highway 2 at Ansley, it continues north from Ansley through Sargent and Rose before meeting U. S. Highway 20 in Bassett. At Bassett, US 183 turns west with US 20 before turning north again near Long Pine. US 183 continues north through Springview before entering South Dakota. U. S. Highway 183 enters South Dakota just south of Wewela, it goes north to Colome, where it intersects U. S. Highway 18. US 183 and US 18 go northwest through Winner together US 183 turns north west of Winner.
It goes north to Presho, where it ends. The South Dakota section of U. S. 183, with the exception of a concurrency with U. S. 18, is
The Edwards Plateau is a region of west-central Texas, bounded by the Balcones Fault to the south and east, the Llano Uplift and the Llano Estacado to the north, the Pecos River and Chihuahuan Desert to the west. San Angelo, San Antonio and Del Rio outline the area; the eastern portion of the plateau is known as the Texas Hill Country. According to the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department, the following 41 counties comprise the Edwards Plateau: The bedrock consists of limestone, with elevations ranging between 100 and 3000 ft. Caves are numerous; the landscape of the plateau is savanna scattered with trees. It lacks deep soil suitable for farming, though the soil is fertile mollisols and some cotton, grain sorghum, oats are grown. For the most part, the thin soil and rough terrain areas are grazing regions, with cattle and Angora goats predominant. Several rivers cross the region, which flow to the south and east through the Texas Hill Country toward the Gulf of Mexico; the area is well drained.
Rainfall varies from 15 to 33 inches per year, on average, from northwest to southeast, the area has a moderate temperature and a reasonably long growing season. Trees of the savanna include juniper and oak species scattered over grasses, a vegetation type shaped by droughts and regular fires; some pecan trees are found near the rivers. The Balcones Fault is associated with the Edwards Plateau formation; this fault line is an ecological demarcation for the range definition of a number of species. Caves of the Edwards Plateau are important habitats for a great deal of wildlife; the area is home to some of the largest colonies of bats in the world, including millions of Mexican free-tailed bats. The largest colony of these inhabits Bracken Cave near San Antonio, while the Congress Avenue Bridge in Austin is the summer home for over half a million and is the largest bat colony anywhere in an urban area; the Edwards Plateau is home to at least 14 endemic freshwater fishes, including two subterranean species of catfish and 13 fish species considered to be spring-associated.
Mechanisms for spring association of fishes is not understood, but thought to mediated by water temperature. The large numbers of reptiles and birds include breeding populations of the Texan endemic golden-cheeked warbler. Nearly all the natural habitat of the plateau has been converted to ranchland, farmland, or urban areas, such as Austin and San Antonio, with only about 2% remaining in scattered fragments to the east of the plateau. Further alteration to the savanna has incurred though the encroachment of shrubs now that grassland fires are controlled. Small areas of intact habitat remain around Austin, where areas are protected, such as the Balcones Canyonlands National Wildlife Refuge. Another important area for wildlife is Fort Hood military base. Earliest human settlement of this area was by Native Americans. First it was used and wandered about by Jumano and Coahuiltecan groups the Apacheria extended into the Southern Plains by the forerunners of the Lipan and Mescalero Apaches. After the expulsion of the Apachean groups from the Plains by the Comanche, this area was dominated by the Penateka band of the Southern Comanche.

San Saba County, Texas
San Saba County is a county located on the Edwards Plateau in western Central Texas. As of the 2010 census, its population was 6,131, its county seat is San Saba. The county is named after the San Saba River. United Confederate Veterans organized a chapter known as the "William P. Rogers Camp" in San Saba County after the death in 1889 of Confederate President Jefferson Davis. Rogers, a hero of the Battle of Corinth in Mississippi, was a native of Georgia, he did not live in San Saba, but his daughter, married one of Rogers' officers, George Harris, who moved there in 1880. A former county judge, Harris served as a commander of Rogers Camp, named for his father-in-law; the veterans' organization lasted until the early 1930s. During the 1880s, a vigilante mob, organized like a fraternal lodge, killed a number of San Saba County settlers. In 1896, the Texas Rangers began an investigation. Uluth M. Sanderson, editor of the San Saba County News, ran editorials against the mob; the mob was broken by the Ranger Captain Bill McDonald and District Attorney W.
C. Linder. Many of the mob executions committed throughout Texas in the time following the Civil War were racially motivated and committed by members of the Ku Klux Klan, which formed in Shelby County, Texas. Most of the people killed by vigilante mobs in the five years after the war were "suspected slave rebels and white abolitionists". Although the KKK in Texas was less active by the 1870s, lives continued to be taken each year. In 1885, for the state of Texas, "...an estimated twenty-two mobs lynched forty-three people, including nineteen blacks and twenty-four whites, one of whom was female". "The San Saba County lynchers, the deadliest of the lot, claimed some twenty-five victims between 1880 and 1896. Vigilante lynching died out in the 1890s, but other varieties of mobs continued." Early Native American inhabitants included Tonkawa, Caddo and Comanche. 1732 - Governor of Spanish Texas, Juan Antonio Bustillo y Ceballos, arrived on the feast day of sixth-century monk St. Sabbas, named the river Río de San Sabá de las Nueces.
1757 - Santa Cruz de San Sabá Mission was established. 1788 - José Mares led an expedition from San Antonio to Santa Fe. 1828 - Twenty-eight people from Stephen F. Austin's group passed through. A portion of the county was included in Austin’s grants from the Mexican government. 1842 - The Fisher–Miller Land Grant contains most of land deeds. 1847 - The Meusebach–Comanche Treaty was signed in San Saba County. 1854 - The Harkey family settled at Wallace and Richland Creeks. The David Matsler family moved from Burnet County to Cherokee Creek. 1856 - San Saba County was organized from Bexar County and named for the San Saba River. San Saba was selected as the county seat. 1858 - The Seventh Texas Legislature confirmed the boundaries of the county. 1860 - The population was 913, which included 98 slaves. 1867 - The County was divided into 10 school districts. 1874 - Edmund E. Risen devoted his work to improving local nuts, in particular the pecan. San Saba billed itself as the Pecan Capital of the World.
1880s-1896 - Mob rule not only whipped and forced out numerous people in towns throughout Texas, but took 140 lives in Texas following the Civil War. San Saba County saw the worst of the violence, with 25 lives taken by lynching from 1880-1896. Mob killings in Texas in the years after the war were racially motivated crimes committed by members of the Ku Klux Klan against suspected slave rebels and white abolitionists. An investigation led to the Texas Rangers restoring order. 1882 - The San Saba Male and Female Academy was founded. 1889 - United Confederate Veterans William P. Rogers Camp No. 322 was established, named for Col. William P. Rogers. 1895 - West Texas Normal and Business College was organized by Francis Marion Behrns. 1896 - The parallel-wire suspension Beveridge Bridge was built across the San Saba River by Flinn, Moyer Bridge Co. 1911 - The Lometa-Eden branch of the Gulf and Santa Fe Railway was built through San Saba County. San Saba County brick and sandstone courthouse is erected.
Architect Chamberlin & Co. 1930 - Half of the county farms were tenant farmed. Uncle Billy Gibbons gave the Boy Scouts of America a 99-year lease to campgrounds along Brady Creek on his ranch. 1938 - San Saba River floods caused county-wide devastation. One-third of the town of San Saba was under water. 1940 - The Town of San Saba was incorporated. 1953-56 - Prolonged drought brought hardship to the county agricultural economy. 1960 - The San Saba County News merged with the San Saba Star. 1965 - A historical marker was erected to honor pioneer doctor Edward D. Doss. According to the U. S. Census Bureau, the county has a total area of 1,138 square miles, of which 1,135 square miles is land and 3.1 square miles is covered by water. U. S.

1890 United States Census
The Eleventh United States Census was taken beginning June 2, 1890. It determined the resident population of the United States to be 62,979,766—an increase of 25.5 percent over the 50,189,209 persons enumerated during the 1880 census. The data was tabulated by machine for the first time; the data reported that the distribution of the population had resulted in the disappearance of the American frontier. Most of the 1890 census materials were destroyed in a 1921 fire and fragments of the US census population schedule exist only for the states of Alabama, Illinois, New Jersey, New York, North Carolina, South Dakota, Texas, the District of Columbia; this was the first census in which a majority of states recorded populations of over one million, as well as the first in which multiple cities – New York as of 1880, Philadelphia – recorded populations of over one million. The census saw Chicago rank as the nation's second-most populous city, a position it would hold until 1990, in which Los Angeles would supplant it.
The 1890 census collected the following information: The 1890 census was the first to be compiled using methods invented by Herman Hollerith and was overseen by Superintendents Robert P. Porter and Carroll D. Wright. Data was entered on a machine readable medium, punched cards, tabulated by machine; the net effect of the many changes from the 1880 census: the larger population, the number of data items to be collected, the Census Bureau headcount, the volume of scheduled publications, the use of Hollerith's electromechanical tabulators, was to reduce the time required to process the census from eight years for the 1880 census to six years for the 1890 census. The total population of 62,947,714, the family, or rough, was announced after only six weeks of processing; the public reaction to this tabulation was disbelief, as it was believed that the "right answer" was at least 75,000,000. The United States census of 1890 showed a total of 248,253 Native Americans living in the United States, down from 400,764 Native Americans identified in the census of 1850.
The 1890 census announced that the frontier region of the United States no longer existed, that the Census Bureau would no longer track the westward migration of the U. S. population. Up to and including the 1880 census, the country had a frontier of settlement. By 1890, isolated bodies of settlement had broken into the unsettled area to the extent that there was hardly a frontier line; this prompted Frederick Jackson Turner to develop his Frontier Thesis. The original data for the 1890 Census is no longer available. All the population schedules were damaged in a fire in the basement of the Commerce Building in Washington, D. C. in 1921. Some 25 % of the materials were presumed another 50 % damaged by smoke and water; the damage to the records led to an outcry for a permanent National Archives. In December 1932, following standard federal record-keeping procedures, the Chief Clerk of the Bureau of the Census sent the Librarian of Congress a list of papers to be destroyed, including the original 1890 census schedules.
The Librarian was asked by the Bureau to identify any records which should be retained for historical purposes, but the Librarian did not accept the census records. Congress authorized destruction of that list of records on February 21, 1933, the surviving original 1890 census records were destroyed by government order by 1934 or 1935; the other censuses for which some information has been lost are the 1810 enumerations. Few sets of microdata from the 1890 census survive, but aggregate data for small areas, together with compatible cartographic boundary files, can be downloaded from the National Historical Geographic Information System.

Lampasas is a city in Lampasas County, United States. The population was 6,681 at the 2010 census, it is the seat of Lampasas County. Lampasas is part of the Killeen–Temple–Fort Hood Metropolitan Statistical Area. For his services in the Texas Revolution, John Burleson received 1,280 acres of land and established a permanent settlement in the 1850s; the city was first named Burleson. When the county was created in 1856, the law specified “The county seat shall be same name as the county.” The city of Lampasas was incorporated in 1883. Several theories attempt to explain; the Texas Almanac states. Another source states; the name was given to the local river by the Spanish Aquayo Expedition in 1721. It is believed the name was inspired by a Mexican town that had beautiful springs; the town was the location of the birth of the Farmers' Alliance, founded in 1876. The Mother's Day Flood of 1957 had Sulphur Creek, a local river, strike the city in devastating flash flood which claimed five lives and destroyed many homes and other property around downtown Lampasas.
In the aftermath, a series of levees and reservoirs was constructed to prevent damage from future catastrophes. Since 1972, Lampasas has held. Like nearby Mineral Wells, Lampasas has mineral springs health spas which once claimed to cure "everything"; the 25-bed Rollins Brook Community Hospital in Lampasas was established by two physicians in 1935: Herbert Bailey Rollins from Pineville, W. M. Brooks. In 1958, Rollins Brook was the smallest accredited hospital in Texas. In 1981, Rollins was sold to a for-profit health care provider in Houston. Over the next decade, the hospital passed through a succession of owners. In 1991, the hospital closed its doors without notice. Thereafter, unable to locate government or foundation grants, raised some $600,000 in community fund-raising activities to reclaim the facility; when it reopened on July 21, 1991, Rollins Brook became the only community hospital to survive bankruptcy. The story was broadcast by ABC News with Peter Jennings. In 1997, the hospital was sold again, this time to the Seventh-day Adventist Church.
In 2005, Rollins Brook opened a new surgical section. Lampasas is located at 31°3′57″N 98°11′0″W; the most notable waterway is Sulphur Creek, which flows from the southwest to the northeast through the south-central part of the city.

Burnet County, Texas
Burnet County is a county located on the Edwards Plateau in the U. S. state of Texas. As of the 2010 census, the population was 42,750, its county seat is Burnet. The county was founded in 1852 and organized in 1854, it is named for the first president of the Republic of Texas. The name of the county is pronounced with the emphasis or accent on the first syllable, just as is the case with its namesake. Indigenous peoples inhabit the area as early as 4500 B. C. Known tribes in the area include Tonkawa, Lipan Apache and Comanche. During the 1820s-1830s Stephen F. Austin and Green DeWitt surveying and Indian fighting explorations. In 1849 the United States established Fort Croghan and in 1848 First settlers arrived in the county, Samuel Eli Holland, Logan Vandeveer, Peter Kerr, William Harrison Magill, Noah Smithwick, Captain Jesse B. Burnham, R. H. Hall, Adam Rankin "Stovepipe" Johnson and Captain Christian Dorbandt. In 1851 Twenty Mormon families under the leadership of Lyman Wight establish a colony at Hamilton Creek to be known as Morman Mill.
In 1852 the Fourth Texas Legislature created Burnet County from Bell and Williamson. The first post office was established at Hamilton in 1853. In 1860 there were 235 slaves in Burnet County After the war some former slaves left the county, but many stayed. A group of them settled on land in the eastern part of Oatmeal. In 1870 the black population of the county had increased to 358, keeping pace with the growth of the total number of residents; some found work on farms and ranches, but by the turn of the century many had moved into the Marble Falls area to work in town. During 1882-1903 railroad tracks connected Burnet, Granite Mountain, Marble Falls and Lampasas. Lake Victor and Bertram became shipping point communities. Other communities lost population. During the Great Depression county farmers suffered financially but found work with government sponsored public-works projects; the Lower Colorado River Authority employed hundreds of people for the construction of the Hamilton Dam and Roy B.
Inks Dam. According to the U. S. Census Bureau, the county has a total area of 1,021 square miles, of which 994 square miles is land and 27 square miles is water. U. S. Highway 183 U. S.
