This is an amazing place to visit by yourself or with the family if you are from Lubbock but especially if you or your family are from out of town and it's your first visit. It has beautiful landscaping great for photos and wonderful historical buildings. The history behind the buildings and things here are astonishing and priceless. The employees have done society a favor and given us such an amazing gift in the preservation of small pieces of history for us to enjoy and learn about and from. THIS HISTORICAL HERITAGE MUSEUM IS ABSOLUTELY FREE FOR THE PUBLIC TO ENJOY. IT'S A MUST VISIT. The photos provided are just a small glimpse of what this place has to offer. There is so much more
Really enjoyed this. A lot of area to cover, but flat. Large variety of homes to look at. Took me about 2 hrs to walk through with me stopping and reading everything. Bathrooms at entrance and drinks to buy available in gift shop. Gift shop had cute stuff.
