Western Travel - Pioneer Days at the Chisholm Trail Museum (Part Four) - Cleburne, Texas - #TravelTuesday

Welcome to my weekly column #TravelTuesday featuring places I've discovered during my research trips or just wandering around in historical areas. I hope you enjoy my discoveries.

Today we continue our review of the 14th Annual Pioneer Days at the Chisholm Trail Museum in Cleburne, Texas.

A nice map of the museum grounds:

Next stop on our little tour around the Chisholm Trail Museum is the Stage Station. Out front is a brightly painted old stagecoach/mail stage. Directly behind the stage coach building are the restrooms.

Interesting Note about early Road Signs...

Down the way a little bit is a Mule Barn which would have housed the mules used to pull the old stagecoaches.

Next door to the Stage Coach is the Sheriff's Office and County Jail.

Inside we found the sheriff and some locals...

And a "paddy wagon" or the early model police car...
