PPHM features Women of the West

The Panhandle Plains Historical Museum's new exhibit is "Gems of the Plains".

It recognizes the work of women in the Texas Panhandle.

The Museum was created in 1930 but much of the work began a year before in 1929 when Wall Street collapsed, leading to the Great Depression.

Nevertheless, the founders were able to get a matching grant from the State of Texas and the rest is preserved history.

In terms of square footage and the number of artifacts, it's the largest museum in the state.

It tells the story from the dinosaurs all the way through cattle, oil, cars and art.
