Quihi, Texas

History

Quihi History 1857.  Ouihi is a scattering village, of ten or twelve habitations, one of them a substantial stone farmhouse, the others very picturesque, high-gabled, thatch-roofed, dormer-windowed, white-washed cottages, usually artis­tically placed in the shade of large dark live-oaks. The people seem to have been successful in their venture, to judge by various little improve­ments they are making and the comforts they have accumulated. -Olmstead’s Account in 1857, A Twentieth Century History of Southwest Texas; Chicago: Lewis Pub. Co., 1907, page 187
