BUDA - There was not much in this little spot when Earl McVicker's ancestors first homesteaded here, a family with three children at the time, all living in a small dugout on a parcel of untouched prairie.

Buda, however, didn't have to be big to be a gathering place for area farmers and others - a place where residents met for potlucks and songs. The town of sorts did once have a hotel, a grocery and a post office in the 1800s, and of course, founders had dreams of it getting bigger.
