As part of our Real County Centennial Countdown, each month County Progress will check in with the Real County Centennial Steering Committee. This month we join the unveiling of two public markers, one in honor of William Carr, the first county judge, and another recognizing Texas Senator Julius Real, the county’s namesake.
