Re: "Gumbo Gravel"--a Cotton Belt specialty

Jason Lee Davis, PhD

The Texas Midland made gumbo for the initial construction of their line in the late 1890's and into the early 1900's.  One known Gumbo Pit was in Delta County near the community of Enloe, just north of Cooper.  The attached description can be found in the Patterson Museum, housed in the former Texas Midland Depot in Cooper, TX.
