Tom Mix's Outhouse (Gone)
The Tom Mix Comes Home Museum in Driftwood, is not in town (which doesn't care about the silent film era cowboy actor) but out on a rural road where first the pavement ends, then the plumbing. The sign "Welcome To Tom Mix Territory," gives no hint of the miles and miles of rutted road you'll have left to travel.
The big attraction here -- for Tom Mix fans -- is his birthplace. The big attraction for Roadsiders is Tom Mix's celebrity outhouse. The Flaughs, the museum's husband and wife owners, though well-meaning are occasionally desperate for company and are black holes of Mix trivia; you can't escape their well-rehearsed ad-libbing. They will talk to you about every single photo, clipping, and collectible in the small Museum. As you wander around the property, large black flies will attack you.
In order to build a monument on the site, the Flaughs sell square inches of the land for $10. Ronald Reagan bought ten square inches, and the Flaughs give out Xeroxes of his $100 check to all visitors. Reagan marked it as a contribution, so taxpayers actually paid roughly $40 of it. Over his square inch is a sign reading, "The President Of The United States Owns This Lot." When the monument is built, RR will be listed as #1 -- though he wrote his check in 1986 and there's still no monument.
The attraction appears to be closed/gone.
