Excited to see Outer Banks Wild Mustangs!
I have been in love with the Outer Banks since the first time I visited (1997). I feel like I am crossing into Heaven when driving across that bridge connecting the mainland to the island. I have hoped to see the wild ponies forever and finally did. A friend from Indiana came down with 4 wheel drive and we were off on an adventure toward the northern part of the OBX. It was so worth the rough ride on the sand.

Houston Indiana Fall Festival
A fundraiser in October, the Houston Indiana Fall Festival, has been an annual celebration at the schoolhouse since 1994. Proceeds from this event are used toward repair and maintenance of the school. Glenda is thrilled to use her technical skills to help preserve this unique and charming place in her hometown. This event is held the 2nd Saturday in October. More details can be found at houstonindianafallfestival.org
Houston Indiana Schoolhouse
Website and Facebook were implemented in 2015 for the restoration effort for a schoolhouse built in 1910 in Houston Indiana. This historic building is currently used for social events, such as a monthly community supper. A calendar for 1967, the last time school was in session at this location, still hangs on the blackboard.
