Known as "The Crossroads of Texas," this city lies at the intersection of U.S. 79, U.S. 190 and Texas 6, as well as the state's major east-west and north-south rail lines. Two historic through-truss bridges are near F.M. 1644 between Hearne and Calvert. The Providence and Wildcat bridges were moved in the 1940s to span the Little Brazos River and have been preserved for use by passenger vehicles.
