Daingerfield gets no respect, no respect I tells ya

Daingerfield, Texas (population: 2,517), is 20 miles SE of Mount Pleasant and 41 miles N of Longview. The community was named in honor of Capt. London Daingerfield who was killed in an 1830 battle with Indians on the site that became the town in the 1840s. Daingerfield may actually get all kinds of respect, I don't know.

Morris Theater - built sometime in the 1940s and was owned at one time by Paramount back when the big movie studios operated and managed theater chains. It was/is beautiful.

Not likely to be mistaken for Times Square.
