|Take a minute this
summer to come by and visit your city's museum. Each item on view has an
informative label as to its name and significance. But you are almost certain
to be given a personalized tour of the White Settlement room, the electronics,
photography, research room, the household tool and furnishings room and
the blacksmith shop. On our cool and shady grounds you will find a tractor
belonging to our earliest families, a baggage car from a long ago railroad
celebrated in history and watering trough from old Camp Bowie. Debate with
our Docents which was more important to the war effort--Carswell AFB or
Camp Bowie. And be sure to learn what part fresh water played in our history.
Speaking of water, we have an actual lump of coal recovered from the real
TITANIC (not guaranteed to have been in the movie). See you soon.
