Things We Still Need To Do!
The Neely/Robertson cabin was built in the mid-late 1850s. It is now being moved log by log by Camon Martin and Gene Luker and will eventually be a part of the first exhibit in Heritage Park. In addition to the cabin, the exhibit will consist of a state park quality sign that tells the story of the cabin, a plow, and other items relevant to the story of the cabin.
Once the exhibit is completed, it will be landscaped with native plants, and the group will move to the second exhibit.
This sign and metal art theropod (found in Comanche) have been ordered and will be mounted in the Comanche City Park in the very near future. Both will be located near the old Lake Eanes archway and dinosaur track molds that now stand in the park. Larry Harbour will be mounting the sign, and Cliff Conway will be in charge of mounting Dino.
We hope to have billboards at all 4 entrances that promote a slice of Comanche’s rich heritage.
We are building a Native American Walking Trail, complete with Native Plants that the Comanche would have used both for food source and medicinal purposes. We have now submitted our information in application for a grant in order to erect a state of the art kiosk and map that will explain what can be found on the trail. The grant does not cover landscape, but it does cover construction of the trail, labor, and signage.
This is not the final draft of the sign because we still need to add the player to it. However, it is getting closer.
We would LOVE to add a couple of beautiful murals to our downtown area.
