Where Is Chocolate Bayou Road Now?

Recommended Posts

I once upon a time lived on Chocolate Bayou Rd. in the 1950s,our location was >>>>8miles south of Holmes Rd. near the Harris-Brazoria county line and we were near+ in the vicinity of Pearland.

Our land was near where the road made a bend on towards Pearland,my brother+I attended elementary

school there.The school bus picked us up everyday.

There were two cemeteries around our land.

I can't find it on Map-Quest,is it gone now?.

Anyone out there have any ideas about this road?.

It's most probably still there.

It may be classified as a county road now.

Many old roads in Brazoria county got labled with a county road number so they could get some funding from the state and feds to do some road improvements. The county roads numbers help out also for emergency situations.

You may have to contact someone at the county offices in Angleton for help.

I've seen 4 in Brazoria County alone, but they all have a county road number also.

Who know which one he was talking about.

I JUST REMEMBER GOING AROUND THE BEND FROM OUR HOME AND HEADING TOWARDS

PEARLAND AND EVENTUALLY SEEING THE ROAD ON THE RIGHT THAT WENT TO MANVELL(MANVILL?)

DON'T KNOW IF THE ROAD CHANGED NAMES AROUND THE BEND OR NOT?

THERE WAS A ROAD THAT WENT TO THE RIGHT AT THIS BEND,THERE WERE RANCHES DOWN THIS ROAD AND IT WAS DEAD-END I BELEIVE?

THANKS All !
