Tarleton State University’s W.K. Gordon Center for the Industrial History of Texas will host Museum After Dark, a twilight scavenger hunt, at 7 p.m. Friday, March 1.

Participants with flashlights will search the main gallery and the latest exhibit, “Looking Back at Toys,” for new information on the historic, company-owned ghost town.


The W. K. Gordon Museum and Research Center is located at 65258 Interstate 20, Exit 367, in Mingus and is open from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Tuesdays-Saturdays and 1-4 p.m. Sundays.


The combined museum and special collections library are located at the site of the Thurber ghost town.


Visitors enjoy interactive exhibits that explore the birth, operations and slow fade of the property owned by the Texas and Pacific Coal Co.


For more information, call 254-968-1886.
