Welcome To Ravenna, Texas
I almost didn’t go to Ravenna, Texas as the turn off road from the main highway US-82 was unpaved and as I continued, the next rural route was under construction and very dusty. But I pressed on once I saw the sign below.
As soon as I turned right, the road got back to normal and it was smooth sailing into the very small town center of Ravenna, Texas. It’s said that the town got its name from, well a ravine that ran through town… It’s one of the few towns where I saw no one as I drove through.

What I thought was unique about the two is that the City Hall, Post Office, Fire Station and the Community Center are all within almost arms length of each other.
