Take a Rest Stop at the site of Old Baylor College

Stroll through The Antique Rose Emporium 

 

The Antique Rose Emporium is a multi-acre celebration of landscaping and the beauty of nature.   When someone coined the phrase, “A little slice of heaven”, this is what they were talking about.  If you love plants, this will be your new favorite place.  If you don’t love plants, you’ll still be wowed.  Pictures don’t do justice.  Just go there.

 

Directions:  The Emporium is about 19 miles from Burton and very close to the Old Baylor College site.  Continue along FM 390.  Turn right on FM 50. Go about 2 blocks and turn left.

Lunch in Chappell Hill
