Early Settlers Come Alive in Jack County

A live history celebration took over the Jack County Museum.  It honored early settlers of the area for what they call Pioneer Day.  Re-enactments portraying commanders and Native American women brought the museum to life.  Those who came got their hands dirty with blacksmithing, horseshoeing, black powder loading,  weaving, quilting and many other activities.

"The Jack County museum really works to preserve Jack County history which is really a part of early Texas history and so anybody can come to our museum and see what kinds of things the early settlers used and will enjoy seeing it." said one county official.  The event was free but a $10 ticket for a utility trailer was raffled off.
