Welcome To Revitalize Comanche
Revitalize Comanche began as a fledgling group of citizens who had a dream of helping the town of Comanche reach its full potential. The group began at Christmas time when they, along with a group of ambitious students, Mayor Ronnie Clifton, and CECA’s Shirley Dukes, decorated the Comanche Courthouse Square with lights, snowmen, wreaths, and even a Frontier Town General Store. From that small beginning was born Comanche Christmas, a group that now stands alone in creating some of the most amazing Christmas lighting the town has ever seen.
By spring, Revitalize Comanche, with the help of Sorrells Farms, was seeing its vision of a completely new landscape for the Comanche Courthouse Square become a reality. Today, Comanche can be very proud of the landscape that is the focal point of the town. Moving right into its next project, Revitalize is now partnered with the Comanche High School Ag Department in a quest to create beautiful metal art across the town.
All of these projects have been funded by private donations and volunteer labor.
Revitalize Comanche continues to grow with a 501 C3 tax status, and continues to raise money through private donations. With its latest project of promoting the town as a Heritage Tourism Destination, Revitalize Comanche needs funds more than ever. Your tax deductible donation is highly appreciated!

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.
