Despite the odds of Indian raids, the Civil War, and one mans feud, Weatherford began as a small frontier settlement in the mid-1800s, and quickly grew into a bustling West Texas county seat known for its Victorian beauty, home-grown peaches, andMoreDespite the odds of Indian raids, the Civil War, and one mans feud, Weatherford began as a small frontier settlement in the mid-1800s, and quickly grew into a bustling West Texas county seat known for its Victorian beauty, home-grown peaches, and small-town charm.

Images of courthouse construction and early pioneering families are among the first glimpses into Weatherfords fascinating history. Other highlights include the development of downtown, forgotten changes to the square, the first city rodeo grounds, photos of the Queen of England sitting for her coronation portrait, as well as rare shots of some of the citys more famous past residents, Larry Hagman and his mother, Mary Martin, and Comanche Chief Quanah Parker.

Additional scenes of schools, streets, politics, firemen, parks, hospitals, and residents provide an entertaining and educational illustration of the citys past.
