WOLF CREEK HERITAGE MUSEUM NOTES
by Virginia Scott
The board met on Wednesday, January 22 to conduct the business for the Historical Commission and the Museum. The following board members were present: Anna Lee Barton, Chairperson; Hugh Barton, Pam Tyson, Willis Smith, Floyd Theissen, Judy Ward, Irene Gensman, Pat Hout, Georgia Couch and Virginia Scott. Officers were reelected and goals for 2014 were set. Minutes of the meeting are available for review in the museum office.
The major topic of discussion was the new addition to the museum. The Board toured the area and discussion held on use of the new space.
If you come by the museum and find us closed with a sign on the door, please call the number. With the cold weather and uncertain road conditions, we are not taking any chances. Lovella and I are in town and will open as needed. However, we are still open five days a week from 10 am to 4pm unless weather is really bad.
One of the early civic leader in the county was Iverson M. Roper of Darrouzett. He was known as "Mr. Darrouzett." He was born in Davis County, Indian Territory and moved to Darrouzett in 1919. He was the first undertaker, casket salesman and hardware dealer in Darrouzett. He was responsible for creating the Darrouzett independent school district. Among his many civic duties, he was a school board member, civic worker, deputy sheriff of the county, tax officer, and justice of the peace. He was born in 1887 and died in 1978. One of his favorite recollections was of the time he sold a lady a large wash tub for a wedding gift, and she requested that he gift wrap it.
Have a good week.
