This is a great idea and will work with everyone's support. Knox County,Texas has more variety and the richest History which can attract more people now with gas prices shooting high than ever before.
It may seem like a stretch and it may take some working together but many people are going to travel no matter what-take an advantage of that.
You have more working for your attracting tourist than you can image-many from all over the US are interested in learning your history and culture. The Texas legend has spread far and wide-from frontier days- the sky is the limit on what you can use to find people who will want to discover what your area is like and why you are what you are today.
Good luck, God will bless your program if you lean on him.
