If you live in the Texas Panhandle (specifically, near Levelland TX) you have an opportunity this weekend to visit several ranches and other sites of historical interest at Texas’ Last Frontier Ranch Heritage Tour. (Not that this is Texas’ last tour of frontier ranching heritage. It’s actually the 7th annual tour, and there’ll likely be another one next year, but ranches are Texas’ last frontier. You understood what they meant, right?)
Anyway, if you’ve got $75 burning a hole in your pocket and a hankering to see the T-Bar Ranch Headquarters, a grave from the 1877 Buffalo Soldier Expedition, and many other sites of interest, email firstname.lastname@example.org or phone (806) 894-4062 for more information. Ticket price includes a full day of events (on a comfortably air-conditioned bus), a book about the tour sites, lunch, and a barbecue dinner with western music and entertainment.
As I looked for info on this event, I happened to run across Glenn’s Texas History Blog. Even if the ranch tour isn’t something you’re interested in, be sure to visit Glenn’s blog for a wealth of other Texas trips and trivia.
