    The Best Museum in the Area

    Davis Santa Fe Depot

    The Davis Santa Fe Depot in nearby Davis is rightfully listed on the National Register of Historic Places. Inside the museum (open 10-4) you'll find mannikins taking the place of conductors, ticket window attendants, armed services recruiters, and the stationmaster's family, but their environs are as authentic-looking today as they would have been a century or so ago. As the Arbuckle History Museum, there are numerous displays and documents that will engage your full attention. Admission is free but donations are welcome.

    Sulphur's Main Street

    Main Street (of Davis), similar to Sulphur

    Sulphur is part of the National Main Street Program, but from my evaluation none of the buildings deserved any special recognition. Though slightly more extensive and more "set off" than the Main Street in Davis, I found the latter's to be more meritorious. Sulphur boasts three listings on the National Register of Historic Places, but neither of the two publicly-accessible is particularly distinguished (I can't comment on the private prehistory site elsewhere in town).

    Gene Autry, Ok.

    Gene Autry, Ok. I drove through a small town named after Gene Autry - the singing cowboy. There really wasn't much here, but I couldn't resist visiting with a name like that. There was a Gene Autry museum - which wasn't open when I was there. There were also a few restaurants and shops. Some of the town looked pretty run-down though. My detour to Gene Autry reminded me a little of Clark Griswald taking his family on a side-trip to see the world's largest ball of string in the movie Vacation.
