Abilene: Home on the Range

May 8, 2014 (All day) to August 9, 2014 (All day)

The history of the settlement of over 20,000 square miles of West Central Texas is told through artifacts and archives in remote local museums, images by artists who documented their experiences in the early years as well as hearsay and legend penned by writers of the era. With this exhibit, The Grace Museum, with those regional partners, defines this region and presents the authentic story of its settlement. Public opening reception on May 8 will feature costumed interpreters in the galleries prior to the Western Heritage Classic Parade. Following the parade is a private event (call to reserve your place).
