WOLF CREEK HERITAGE MUSEUM NOTES
by Virginia Scott


MUSEUM HAPPENINGS

The end of summer is providing some out of town visitors and some geocachers. They all enjoy our history. We also have had visitors using our research room for their family genealogy. Everyone is impressed with our museum and our research resources. So again we thank you our supporters for the assistance you give the museum.

This Sunday we will host a reception for Pam Haines and her dolls. We will also have a presentation by Carrel Ed Wilson on the Plains Indian Tribes. He is bringing two guests with him, also. So Sunday at 2pm ought to be an interesting informative afternoon mark your calendars.

The staff is still busy cataloging new items into our collections so we should have new items appearing in our different areas, let us know if you notice.

HISTORICAL MUSINGS

In 1918, the people of Lipscomb County received telephone service through the efforts of one repairmen named "Shady" Martin. He worked for the Northwestern Telephone company . After his first month it was reported that he had "made right" the Lourwood line which had been out for some time. The Glazier line was now working smooth and the east line which had trouble is now so you can get "hello" over it "shust fine while at the same time the Sand Creek people are enjoying good service over their line that has been "on the bum". One man for repairs and one line for communication. What progress we have made in 100 years.
