We continue our tour of Parker County with the Village of Downey. It is not one village but more of a collection of three seprate villages lumped together for governmental ease.

In the northeast is Fiji.  This is the smallest village, of only 30 residents. There are a couple of small shops, but most of the residents are farmers

Just south of the bridge from Fiji is the village of Eldora. This is named after a local indian tribe that has since moved away.

most of the residents here hold high level farm managment positions, and they are able to afford the high cost of living here.

West of Eldora is the main village of Downey. A typical small town, everyone knows everyone else, and they love that.

Many of the rich farm owners live here, and they hold poker tournaments in their homes on a regular basis.

Also located here is the Tri-County regional rail service yard.

Broken trains from all over the region come here for a little TLC.

Having the service yard has been a boon for the esidents. Since they are paid monthly for their trouble, they were able to afford  new (and safer) rail and road bridges.

Here are a couple shots from around town:

This is the regionslargest soybean farm. The people of Downey don't particularly enjoy them, but they love growing them for yuppies who love soy lattes.

This is the local waffle house. It is especially popular with truckers.
