A group of community volunteers is working to bring attention to one of the city’s shiniest gems – the Stephenville Historical House Museum.


Robin Ritchie, a member of the Erath County Historical Commission, told Beneath the Surface News that the public is invited to stroll the museum grounds and learn more about its historic structures during the museum’s family homecoming event happening from 2-5 p.m. on Sunday, Oct. 24.


“Several members from donor families that gave to the museum will be there to talk about their family’s piece of Erath County history,” Robin said. “For example, Debbie Wolf Tidwell will be there to talk about the iconic Wolf sign.”


The museum, founded in 1966, has six original cabins on display, which include the Buck Cabin, Corn Crib, Carmack Cabin, Walker Cabin, Cowan Cabin and Dog Trot Cabin – each one donated to the museum by Erath County families.


Walking tours of the buildings and cabins will be available during the event along with refreshments.
