Click on links to learn more about the history of: [ Sarita, Texas ] and [ Kenedy County ] . When in Sarita, visit the [ Kenedy Ranch Museum ] and [ Lebh Shomea House of Prayer ] at [ La Parra Ranch ] , a division of the [ Kenedy Ranch ] located in the [ Wild Horse Desert ] , six miles due east of town. These links are a great way to learn about the historical community of [ Sarita, Texas ] and view the pictorial history of the [ Kenedy County Courthouse ] . The family life of [ Sarita Kenedy East ] , South Texas rancher and philanthropist is an interesting read, including the efforts to have "Sarita" beatified for [ Sainthood ] in honor of her good works. She's been called by a number of those who knew her as "Saintly Sarita." The wind of change is now blowing on the Kenedy Ranch with the development of the [ Wind Farms ] . Hundreds of wind turbines line the countryside. If you like reading stories about ghost sitings, read these: [ Sarita, Texas Ghost Tales ] posted on the "Ghosts of America" website. Dr. Seuss stated, "The more that you read, the more things you will know. The more that you learn, the more places you'll go." We at the library concur and feel that the more that you read, the more things you will indeed learn.
