 When I was a teenager, I can remember my grandma telling me the story about the
  small town of Pickwick. Pickwick was done away with because the dam was going 
 to be built. She was a native of Palo Pinto County. My grandpa, Lon L. Mason, g
 rew up in Palo Pinto, Texas. She and I had many conversations about history whi
 le eating her Teacakes. Try the recipe, and maybe, you can remember a story or 
 two to tell.
