Quirky Tourist Attractions in or near Texas
While in Texas, you might enjoy a visit to:
Long-lived "Light Bulb Methuselah" was first screwed in at a local opera house in 1908. When the theater was demolished in 1977 the bulb was carefully moved and plugged in at the Stockyards Museum.
A family-owned collection of historic dollies, jacks, bars, rollers, boomers -- things that you'll need if you ever want to move your house.
Big dino statues from the 1964 NY World's Fair stand near a riverbed full of authentic dinosaur footprints.
Plain cedar benches became the center of controversy in 1949 when the ladies of Whitney, offended by bench-loads of cussing, spitting, whittling men, demanded that they be moved to an alley. Refurbished benches are outside the museum, which exhibits the Life magazine story on the ultimate victor.
