WOLF CREEK HERITAGE MUSEUM NOTES
by Virginia Scott


MUSEUM HAPPENINGS

Attended the Texas Plains Trail meeting in Borger last week. It was a routine meeting with nothing new from state. The legislature appears to have renewed the trails program for another year and have made the program a line item in the THC budget so that is good.

The Board for the Texas Historical Commission will meet in Amarillo Thursday and Friday of this week. I hope to attend and if I do I will report on their activities next week.

We are having great visitors coming to the museum this summer It is interesting to read the guest book and see visitors from California and France. All our visitors are impressed with the museum and the history of our county. I makes the museum staff proud to be apart of the museum and the county. We thank each of you for your support of the museum.

The board meets Wednesday so I will report next week.

HISTORICAL MUSINGS

In the July, 1918 issue of Limelight, the Skaggs report the following:
"Among the busy people of this old town and them that believes in doing a thing or two, is that A. R. Turner living in the east part of town. He is a busy member, this week ha has let a contract to excavate and put down with all the finishing touches added, a 'fraid hole' to Reimen, Baucon and Hardin, and by the way they have all been perspiring since the beginning Wednesday, it might be safe to say the work is coming along 'swimmingly.'"
Is the hole a storm cellar or a swimming hole? Let us know.
