On the porch of one of the homes
Tub - I think this is called a foot tub - it's pretty small. ?? Need to look this up.
This settlement features the first county courthouse, jail and 17 buildings with western and Indian artifacts. We had a great time walking through all of the buildings -- the first home reminded me so much of my grandparents home in Yoakum - the creaking floorboards, the old oven, and so many of the furnishings.
There were some beautiful ceiling lamps that had been converted from oil burning. Just beautiful!

This stone tool looked frightening!
????? Any ideas?
There was an old schoolhouse, a train depot, doctors house, an art display building, an old bank building, post office, and blacksmith's building. We could have spent hours here -- and we did stay until after 1pm, but were getting hungry. Too bad they didn't have a restaurant there, we would have stayed longer.
The bank building
John behind the counter at the gas stationAfter we left we stopped at one of the local places, The Bar BQ Barn. I thought we had stepped back to the 1950s, but the food honestly was very good. Very tender brisket.
