Do you know what the famous abbreviation GTT means? In the 1800s, Gone To Texas was a phrase often found carved or painted on the doors of abandoned houses or left as a sign on a fence. For example, during the economic panic of 1819, many people escaped their debt by moving to Texas. Just before his death at the Alamo, Davy Crockett explained what brought him to Texas. “…I will tell you all about it. I was, for some years, a member of congress… I told the people of my district, that, if they saw fit to re-elect me, I would serve them faithfully as I had done; but, if not, they might all go to h——, and I would go to Texas.” His listeners burst into a roar of applause.

Texas was a haven for those in search of a better life, a land of freedom and potential. That still holds true today, now more than ever! From California to New York, Americans fed up with big-city headaches and the skyrocketing cost of living in cramped environments are escaping to a new life of peace, freedom, and wide-open spaces.
