Devilâ??s Kitchen home to Panhandle power

Downstream of Lake Tanglewood, past the dam, the water continues its course through Palo Duro Canyon.

Itâ??s a place of simple beauty, a place of reflection and peace.

And thatâ??s probably why itâ??s been used for that purpose for at least a century.

A photograph entitled, "Devilâ??s Kitchen 1917" depicts 87 men standing in front of a cave, The Devilâ??s Kitchen.

The historic photograph features many of the founders of our area, Charles Goodnight, Charles Wolflin, and many more.

As it turns out, the men gathered at the cave that year to honor the visiting Governor of the day, James Ferguson, who had traveled to the Panhandle to meet with its business leaders.
