Other sites are the Kaufman County Poor Farm in Kaufman, the Lewis Railroad Hotel in San Augustine, the Magnolia Hotel in Seguin, the Panhandle Inn in Panhandle, the William Pfluger House in Pflugerville and the Ritz Theatre in Corpus Christi.

The list also includes the Spettel Riverside House in Lakehills and Union Missionary Baptist Church in Jefferson.
