Is Eastland worth a stop? Yes.
About Eastland, Texas:
Eastland is the county seat of Eastland County. Eastland is also home to Old Rip. The Texas horn toad anomaly.
Old Rip is on display in the courthouse. I had to pass through a metal detector to get this horrible photo. Old Rip forever enshrined in his red velvet lined casket.
As for accommodations look no further than The Eastland Hotel.
The Eastland Hotel (est. 1918) perfect for overnighting during a Bankhead Highway tour.
