Doctor James W. Throckmorton will find out if he is moving out of historic downtown McKinney in November.
A vote is expected in next 30 days but won’t be before the Nov. 3 general election.
In the meantime, Throckmorton remains camped out at the old courthouse on the square.
Historic note: Throckmorton entered the State Senate as a Democrat, and he opposed Texas leaving the Union.
Citizens of McKinney erected a statue to honor Throckmorton. The inscription says “A Tennesseean by Birth, a Texan by Adoption.”
