Review for WOLF CREEK HERITAGE MUSEUM, Lipscomb, TX, USA
As Regional Director of the Texas Plains Trail Region, I have the privilege to visit over 75 museums in the area, all of which hold great historic treasures. I can say, without doubt, that the Wolf Creek Heritage Museum in Lipscomb, Texas is a rare gem amongst those treasures. A leisurely stroll around the square is a unique experience where on most days you will find wild turkeys running around on the Lipscomb County Courthouse lawn, a cowboy poet and storyteller in the Beeson Saddle Shop, and an outdoor platform where many a boot has been scooted. Yes, Lipscomb is a much-welcomed respite from the hurry-scurry world that many of us have grown accustomed. Virginia Scott, Director of the Wolf Creek Museum, is an extraordinary woman who, along with her tireless helpers, have found creative ways to develop exhiibits to share the fascinating history of the area. Although tucked away in the Northern corner of the Texas Panhandle, a trip to the museum is assuredly one that will remain in your memory banks for a long time. You will come away with a great appreciation for the land, its people, and their history.
