They were part of a group of astronauts who moved to the area in the 1960s  and  a few who still reside here today.  They built or lived in some of the most desirable mid century or traditional homes on the spacious, tree lined lots thru out El Lago, TX.   Many maps and articles can be seen if you want a tour of some of these homes still standing and lovingly restored here in El Lago, TX.
