Chocolate Tasting in Calvert, Texas
Explore this historic town for a “taste” of the Lone Star state.
After a drive around Calvert, Texas historic downtown, it’s clear to see that this now unassuming town has had many lives. Thanks to a massive cotton gin and the train (which still whips through town), residents here were once wealthy enough to build an opera house as well as dozens of Victorian homes. That was the late 1800s: Now it’s a budding artists community, anchored by a curious chocolate shop that has put Calvert back on the map.
