Floor lights for people that go at night! I enjoyed it -- very quiet. Great place to think.

Who shot J.R.?

[Shelia, 01/04/2016]

Larry Hagman, best known for his portrayal of oil baron J.R. Ewing (and Major Nelson on "I Dream of Jeanie"), died in 2012. The statue unveiling on Sept. 21, 2014, was attended by Larry Hagman's children, who pronounced it a perfect likeness. The actor lived in lots of places, but Weatherford was where he went to high school.
