Cool if you are into history and like looking at little houses! But bring LOTS of water!!! Most of it is outdoors and it gets extremely hot!

Nothing like this I have ever encountered! It is an outdoor museum that showcases the different living conditions of West Texas. A definite spot to visit if you have a few hours.

Bar
“Triple J Chophouse has an in-house brewery that keeps several rotating craft brews on tap. Their food is excellent, and the service is always top-notch. If you’re looking for a great steak, burger, or chicken fry, this is the place to go. They usually have live music on Friday and Saturday nights. It’s also located directly in the depot if you want to go out and enjoy some of the bars during your stay. ”

Cafe
“This place offers brews roasted from fair-trade beans & light fare offered in a rustic-chic cafe with live music. If you are a coffee snob, this is the place to try something new. Don’t let the unassuming front fool you!”
