#795. Burton Cotton Gin

Taken this past weekend in Burton, Texas. This shot and my next five or six posts feature the Burton Cotton Gin Museum which is a 1920's cotton gin that is maintained in working order and utilized to gin cotton once a year at the Annual Cotton Gin Festival. The facility and tour are fascinating and represent a very important part of American history so I highly recommend you take the tour if your ever in the Burton area.

Title: "Burton Cotton Gin"
