I though I heard something like that, too. She was murdered, but from everything I can find it says that her case is still unsolved to this day. I know Lucas confessed to almost a 100 killings, and maybe hers was one of them. Later, though, police thought he made them all up, and he was only charged with killing 3 or 4 people, she wasn't one of them. Does any body remember the year she was killed? I know she was alive in 1977 and Lucas arrested in 1983. The Farmer's Daughter lasted until 1996.

And something about that place resonated with me and has stuck in my mind all this time. That one time, I could FEEL a history speaking to me. It wasn’t ghosts, it was a Sense of Place dying. As a teenager, I used to fantasize about opening my own restaurant. I used to imagine the menu. It wasn’t until I started doing all this research into the Wolfe’s Inn that I realized the layout of the menu, the font, the entrées, and the look and feel of the restaurant I used to imagine….. that was all from the Wolfe’s Inn.


That is totally fascinating! I will look forward to hearing more about The Wolfe Inn.

I know that if you go to Hazleton, PA, you'll probably find them. I use to talk to one of the younger guys and he told me that they came from there. You know about the drugs and the rest......

It was Country Corner and the building was tore down and replaced with a Valero right in front of Abel's Diner. I think I saw the Big Cowboy out on IH 10 west somewhere around the Camp Bullis area not to long ago.

satx56: Wasn't Champions Dance Hall on the corner of 410 and 181 s. or am I confusing that with the Silver Saddle? Or could it have been Champions Silver Saddle. Anyway, I remember old man champion was in a wheel chair and would still get out on the dance floor with some pretty girl and wheel around to the music. I frequented Hill Top most of the time because if you sat way in the back corner the waitress would let you buy beer regardless of your age. Those were the days!

Heh!! Hi CR, I don't recall the Champions name at all. All the years of my recollection "Silver Saddle" was at the corner of 181 S. & 410. Seems like I may recall it being changed to SS or to something else from SS later on! Champions only rings bells as a present time sports bar I think I've been to!! Hilltop a little further out 181 just before the Elmendorf cutoff! Hill Top was legendary..it was around a long time! I don't recall ever actually going to either for dancing. Me and a buddy did drop some girls off at Hill Top. It was after the "Pleasanton Cowboy Homecoming" big street dance. That was around 1972 and Mel Tillis was there! We came back from the coast just in time for the dance. Myself and three buddies! Don't recall what time we got out of there. There was another Big barn looking building inside 410 on Presa(181) about a third of the way towards Military Dr. Don't recall what that was at one time!! Golden Stallion on Ackerman was my principal hangout. Although I went to "Randy's" occasionally. I also went pretty regular to dances in Castroville and Quihi!! Those were the days!!

Yes, the Silver Saddle was at Loop 410 & S.Presa and was owned by
the Champion family. The building is still there but i don't think they
are open for any kind of business.
