Cross Plains: Robert E. Howard Museum

Project Pride is a community organization in Cross Plains, Texas that bought
the Howard House in 1989 and has since restored it to a museum in Robert E.
Howard’s memory.  Howard, one of the world’s most highly acclaimed writers of
fantasy and adventure, pounded out stories of many genres in the little white
house on the western edge of Cross Plains, where he lived with his parents from
1919 until his death in 1936.  Although he created many other characters, Conan
the Barbarian has probably become Howard’s most well known conquering hero.
