Tarleton State’s Gordon Center offers free admission for kids this weekend.
You’re invited to enjoy a full weekend of interactive fun and crafts at Tarleton’s W.K. Gordon Center for Industrial History of Texas. There’s no admission for children 12 and under.
In addition to reconstructions of the old Thurber mercantile, livery stable and opera house, kids will be facinated by an exhibit that explores the process of brickmaking and the Texas roads paved with brick. In the late 1800s and early 1900s, workers at Thurber produced 80,000 bricks daily.
The museum and research facility is located in the historic ghost town of Thurber, between Fort Worth and Abilene. For more information, visit www.tarleton.edu/gordoncenter or the museum’s Facebook page.
