But Weatherford is more than just peaches....
Weatherford actually is known for other things...besides peaches. It is said to be the cutting horse capital of the world and can boast of being home to many professional trainers and hall of fame horses.
Watermelons and pecans seem to thrive here, so ripe, juicy peaches are not the only crop exported from this area.
Many Victorian and turn of the century homes can be found in Weatherford--it is said there are more than 60 of these. Some designed in the gorgeous Queen Anne style.
Author, Larry McMurtry, was inspired by tales of bigger-than-life cattle drivers who operated in the Weatherford area, portraying them in his popular book LONESOME DOVE.
