Lonn Taylor’s History Program
The Rambling Boy: Stories About Texas is a weekly look at regional history, hosted by Lonn Taylor of Fort Davis.
Taylor is a writer and historian who moved to the Big Bend after retiring from the Smithsonian Institution in Washington, D.C. in 2002.
The show is broadcast Friday mornings after the 11 AM newscast.
On a recent trip to San Antonio, Lonn Taylor dropped by the Japanese Garden in Brackenridge Park.
Today on the Rambling boy, Lonn tells us the history of the garden — how it changed hands from the Japanese Jingu family to the Chinese Wu family, and how its beloved status saved it from commercial development.
