Western Travel - Frisco Heritage Museum (Part One) - Frisco, Texas - #TravelTuesday

Continuing where we left off last week at the Frisco Heritage Center, I wanted to explore the Frisco Heritage Museum a little bit more as it had some great exhibits on the Railroad and its affect on the town of Frisco as well as some interesting artifacts. This week we'll just peak at the Covered Wagon and the Printing Press.

The first artifact sit right inside the back entrance to the museum complex - a covered wagon. It's similar to the ones that travelled to Frisco in the early 1900s which is surprisingly small considering a entire family's belongings would be piled inside of it.

The Frisco Journal (the local newspaper) began in 1902, the same year the town was founded. They have a really nice printing press and type setting storage cabinet.
There is a fun video uploaded by the museum on YouTube: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5B3IDYT8Frw which shows more information on the printing press.

Come visit next week when I showcase some additional artifacts in the museum.
