The Nacogdoches City Council will consider an agreement Tuesday to recycle all of its mattresses that enter its landfill. The mattresses would go to a Whitehouse, Texas, couple who makes art out of the coils and sells it at Canton Trade Days in Canton, Texas.
Susan Hale is a furniture up-cycler. She is selling wreaths, Christmas trees, crosses and other home decor items out these reclaimed coils.
A bronze sculpture will be dedicated Thursday in Nacogdoches honoring its prolific architect and builder Diedrich Rulfs. The German-born architect designed most of Nacogdoches’ elegant historic homes from the late 1800s to 1926. This is the seventh sculpture produced by the organization Friends of Historic Nacogdoches, Inc. President Jeff Abt said the sculptures are on a heritage walk that is a tribute to the people who made the oldest town in Texas what it is today.
