Where I Live: Jackson Court
One day we saw a new development spring up between Well Springs and River Oaks, a small area being built with red brick townhomes, set amongst some of the most beautiful, mature live oaks in the city. By 1998, we owned one of these beautiful red brick townhomes in Jackson Court. Shipley Do-Nuts and Mimis Barbacoa are two of Mark Jaggards favorite neighborhood eats. Mark Jaggard stands at the entrance to his neighborhood, where a newly-mounted flagpole is backdropped by mature live oaks. That is what defines Jackson Court.therivardreport.com
