We had a lovely time touring the Charles Goodnight (of the famous Goodnight/Loving cattle train) home and learning about his life and travels. Our guide was from the area and knew tons of interesting tidbits about Mr. Goodnight! One interesting fact is that Mr. Goodnight never slept indoors. He always slept outside on his back porch. Our tour guide also knew how the real story related to the book 'Lonesome Dove'. The historical center has a short, informative movie they show before the tour. It was fascinating! The house has been faithfully restored to it's original condition. For anyone interested in West Texas history, I highly recommend putting this place as a stop on your list.
My Mom, sister and I had a very enjoyable and informative visit and we appreciate the staff sharing their knowledge of Charles and Molly Goodnight. If you are in the area make a point to stop and visit to learn the impact this couple made on our country. Thanks for saving the buffaloes Molly!
