Current GOAL

Please drop this item in rural OR Premium Member Only caches.  Do not place it in an urban cache or abandon it at a caching event.  Transport the bug in the original plastic bag for as long as the bag lasts; the bag keeps the trackable clean, preserves the tracking number and prevents tangling with other items.  Otherwise, take the travel bug anywhere you wish.  No permission is needed to leave the U.S.

Travel bug photos are appreciated.  I will re-post them here, where they can be seen by other cachers.

About This Item

This is one of a series of large beads obtained from different places and converted into travel bugs.  They are named for Texas towns with interesting names or histories.  Much of the text is from the online Handbook of Texas or texasescapes.com.

Bath, originally called Possum Walk, was a community on Farm Road 1374 eight miles west of Interstate Highway 45 in southwestern Walker County.  The Union Hill Baptist Church was established there in 1872. Postal authorities did not approve the name Possum Walk, so in 1877, the community became Bath for reasons now lost.  Bath reported twenty-five residents in 1892 and forty in 1896.  The Union Hill church building served as both a place of worship and a schoolhouse until a separate facility for the school was provided in 1899.  Around 1900 two cotton gins, a gristmill, and a sawmill operated at Bath.  The post office closed in 1905.  In 1911 the community still had its school, which had seven grades, and the church. As late as 1936 Bath persisted as a community of scattered farm dwellings clustered around the school and church. By the early 1990s only the Union Hill Baptist Church and a cemetery remained.
