FEATURED SITE

Our featured site for November and December is Frontier Texas!, a museum of the American West located in downtown Abilene.

 

 

The first thing one would notice are the eight very large and very cool bison shaped weathervanes flying high in the sky above the site. Once inside, visitors are treated to a “Century of Adventure” (1780-1880), beginning in the museum’s theater with a production narrated by actor-artist Buck Taylor. This is one of only a few museums in the world to feature life-sized holographic figures, so visitors can meet – at least figuratively – some of the real people who lived and died on the Texas frontier, as well as the terror of a wolf attack, the chaos of a buffalo stampede and the tension of a deadly card game shootout, along with buffalo hunters, Comanche warriors, explorers and pioneers. The Abilene and Forts Trail Visitor Center, located inside Frontier Texas!, offers free visitor information and the General Store features Texas-themed gifts, so you can pick up a souvenir of your visit, as well as some Cartridge Candy to give you a little taste of history! Tell them Sutler Cyrus sent you.
