Dropped by the Charles Goodnight Historical Center per the recommendation of a friend and had a wonderful visit. My tour guide, Karli, has an expansive knowledge of early Panhandle history and made the house come alive with her tour. Beautifully restored, the home is a stalwart relic of West Texas pioneer life complete with authentic furnishing and adornments, from the original stained glass to the recreated wallpaper. Buffalo roam across the land as another symbol of Goodnight's legacy; whereas the home was firmly his wife Molly's territory, and what a home she kept. I'd recommend a visit to anyone passing through on the highway.
This place is really special! The house has been restored to period perfection and is available to browse first hand. The tour guide Karli is especially well versed in the history of Goodnight and his family, and gives a super tour through the grounds with plenty of insider information, from the practices of the cowboys even down to the wallpaper of the original house!
