11/6 Springtown Legends Museum 839 N. Main Springtown 817-220-5105 www.legendsmuseum.org
Legends Museum was founded by a couple inspired to showcase the rich history of Springtown, Texas, which was settled more than 150 years ago. Both avid historians, Laurie and Julia Moseley collected artifacts, historical records and items from the settlement days and wanted to share them with others. They found a place in the back of a former saddle shop, which also housed the Chamber of Commerce with just enough room for a few fossils, Indian artifacts, some old photos, a saddle (made in that very shop) and a few books. As interest in the museum grew, so did the collection and more space was needed for both the chamber and the museum.
Around that time, the house that Julia's grandmother, Jana Hutcheson had lived in for 50 years became available. James Wilkins, a teacher had built the home in the early 1900s out of timber salvaged from another building, proudly telling his sons that it only cost $600 to complete.
The museum, located at 839 North Main, had fallen into disrepair but with willing volunteers it was restored to house the many relics from Springtown’s past. Today, it is a walk back in time through the rooms of the old house, including a full service kitchen. The museum is open Thursdays and Saturdays from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m or appointment by calling 817-220-7759.
