Culture Center’s lobby in display cases where you can see the craftsmanship of the weapons. We appreciate all of these families sharing these pieces of history and artistry with us,” said Amanda Edwards, curator at the Doss. The museum is open until 8 p.m. for guests to enjoy the new items as well as the two exhibits. Celebrating 10 is an exhibit based on the many different items included in the museum’s collection, from a dress worn by Ina Chandor to Queen Elizabeth’s coronation to folk art buildings depicting downtown Poolville. Settling the Frontier is an exhibit in the Cartwright Gallery that explores how early settlers made their way to Texas and Parker County and the dwellings they built when they arrived.
