The middle of December we attended the 34th Annual Candlelight Tour of Homes in Weatherford.
The first stop was the Doss Heritage and Culture Center. You can read more about this stagecoach and the museum from a previous post.
One of the docents demonstrated how the movement of the stagecoach felt to the paying customers inside the coach by rocking it back and forth. Although the inside was plush with tufted velvet seats, the ride would have been bumpy with the passengers tossed to and fro.
These collectibles brought back memories of Saturday mornings at the movies. The cowboy movies of Roy Rogers, Dale Evans, Gene Autry, etc. seemed so exciting at the times. In reality, they were pretty bland.
This is a great little museum and well worth a visit.
The first house we toured was the Jim Wright home, which now houses the Fire Department Headquarters. Actually, Wright only lived here for two years as a child.
