Bastrop Opera House Presents
The Seventh Annual Bobby Jenkins Scholarships Fundraiser
Unable to seat a jury in Columbus to try Jim Townsend for murder because of the infamous Stafford-Townsend feud of Colorado County, the trial was transferred to Bastrop. It did not take long for the feud to spill over into Bastrop when young lawyer Arthur Burford was ambushed and murdered on Main Street.
