Stephenville Seal..

Queen Elizabeth and Prince Philip visiting Stephenville...
This place was formerly known as the Acadian village, between 1848 and 1870.. The populace of the village consisted of Roman Catholics who eked out a living, farming and fishing.. The town's population continued to grow because of the stable economy.. It was also formerly home to Ernest Harmon AFB, which was operated by the United States Army Air Forces and later the United States Air Force from 1941 to 66...Stephenville is a city in and the county seat of Erath County, Texas, United States..The population was 17,123 at the 2010 census.. Founded in 1856, it is home to Tarleton State University.. Stephenville is among several communities that call themselves the "Cowboy Capital of the World"..Coal mining also became important to the area in 1886 and was a major source of economy for the following 3 decades...

"Shield Strategic Air Command"...

Ernest Harmon Air Force Base is a former United States Air Force base located in Stephenville, Newfoundland and Labrador.. The base was built by the United States Army Air Forces in 1941 under the Destroyers for Bases Agreement with the United Kingdom..The airfield is now operated as Stephenville International Airport while many of the base's support buildings and housing have been incorporated into the town of Stephenville..The Cold War expansion of the base in the early 1950s coincided with the Korean War and the rise in nuclear tensions with the Soviet Union.. The USAF sought to build more roads in the area to serve the base and nearby Pinetree Line early warning radar site and to patrol the immediate area for security; the roads would also act as a means of dispersing personnel in an emergency.. One of the more important projects was a bypass road around the base, known as the Hansen Memorial Highway..Local priest Father Sears established a church in the coastal community of Stephenville and by 1884 there were 4 Catholic schools in the parish.. One at Sandy Point, one at the Highlands, one at Port aux Basques and one at Campbell's Creek.Protestant schools were subsequently established in the St. George's Bay area as settlements grew... hear anything Inspector Clay?.Long distance electrodes shot into the pineal and pituitary gland..Thought I did..In my land, women are for advancing the race, not for fighting man's battles...
