Travel Tips for Abilene

Bow Studio and Gallery

by basstbn

OK - it's not that far off of the beaten path, but it's outside of the city limits and partially hidden by the trees and gardens. This was our second surprising discover in Abilene (after the Lebold Mansion.) We met Inga and Bob Bow at their studio/gallery on a Sunday morning, and Bob graciously showed us around, discussing their craft and giving us a lot of insight into how they create these beautiful works.

CANDY!

by jayhawk2000

At 1993 Caramel Boulevard you’ll find the Russell Stover Candies Outlet. Enjoy fresh samples and watch how candy is made in the demo kitchen. The shop sells a full range of Russell Stover sweeties, including leftover holiday candy and broken candy which are a bargain! Ring 785/263-0116.

AND DO YOU HAVE ANY IDEA HOW HARD IT IS TO FIND A PICTURE OF SOME CANDY ON THE INTERNET???? I WASTED A HALF HOUR TRYING TO FIND A NICE PICTURE OF SOME CANDY. ANY CANDY. AND I CAME UP WITH ZIP. ZERO. NADA. BUPKISS!

So here is a lovely photo of the factory where they make candy.

Here is a beautiful quilt...

by brdwtchr

Here is a beautiful quilt created by sewing thousands of tiny squares of cloth together. It depicts the state flower of Kansas, the sunflower. In pioneer days quilting was a way to use up scraps of cloth cut from clothes that had been worn out. It was a way to use some thing again. It took a lot of labor to make a quilt and it was often a project several women would meet and work on together.

When we were at the Dickenson...

by brdwtchr

When we were at the Dickenson County Heritage Center they were having a quilt contest. Women from all over had taken beautiful quilts there. As paying visitors we were given a score card to vote for our favorite quilt. Quilts are passed down as family heirlooms. If you see a handmade quilt it is some thing special.

Old Abilene--Original Texas Street Location

by atufft

The Old Abilene seen today is basically a park of old and recreated structures, but the original location of downtown Abilene is known and marked by a sign at the corner of 1st and Cedar--known in earlier times as Texas Street. This was the stretch of saloons and other businesses that catered to the cowboys and kept lawmen, like Wild Bill Hickok fully employed. The D.G. Smith building, an interesting relic in its own right, was built in a decade after this period in the town's history, however.
