So you’ve probably been wondering….how did the town get that name?
Copper Breaks State Park is #1 of 2 things to do on TripAdvisor.
#2 is the local train museum.
Quanah, Acme & Pacific Railroad was a 117 mile freight rail line with a history that chronicles industry and railroading at the turn of the century in this area. With its demise in the 1980’s the County Historical Society took over the old station and it now houses an eclectic mix of historical artifacts from the railroad as well as the town. It appears everyone with some historical artifact has donated it. There are old medical devices from the turn of the century hospital, Garden Club scrapbooks from the early 1900’s, old telephones, phonographs, televisions….and much more. It was an enjoyable hour or so browsing.
Last but not least, from our app entitled Offbeat Attractions, a Quanah landmark…the Big Sneaker!
