HPT: See the history of Nocona at the Tales ‘N’ Trails museum
NOCONA, TX (TNN) - In this week’s Hometown Pride Tour we stopped at the Tales 'N' Trails Museum in Nocona right along highway 82.
The museum highlights the 132 year history of the town and the surrounding area.
The museum focuses on five main categories; western heritage, leather making, oil & gas, agriculture, and the history of the Native Americans in the area.
The museum is currently working on setting up two new exhibits that should open up by the end of the year. One on western heritage and the other on leather goods.
They already have an exhibit on Native Americans. The oil and gas exhibit is a constantly growing outdoors because it’s all big equipment.
With the agricultural exhibit, they have the barn finished and they are in the process of trying to figure out how to tell the stories of all the agricultural development in this area.
There are some arrow points that are the only eight known in the world that date back 6000 years and are ceremonial that are on display.
They have determined the stone came from two different quarries in central Texas. Yet they were found in Montague county.
But between the leather making, oil and gas production, agricultural history, Native American tribes and the western heritage, it truly is a unique place to see the history of Nocona.
