The Texas Camel Corps is not stationed
at Indianola, however, they were here on May 19-20, 2006.This was the first
step of the trek from Indianola to Camp Verde west of San Antonio.
The original Camel Corps
landed at Indianola in 1856, more came later in the same year, and they
crossed the southwest and made it to California as an experiment to the
adaptability of camels as pack animals. Then they walked back to Texas.
The TEXAS CAMEL CORP. will be
at Indianola on August 20, 2011 - the 125th anniversary of the 1886 hurricane
that ultimately destroyed the city.
