History, Landscape and Sculpture across the Texas Plains

Friends of the Neill-Cochran House Museum Study Tour # 18

October 11 - 16, 2022


Inspired by the NCHM Book Club selections, Butterfly Yellow, Remember Ben Clayton, Daughter of a Daughter of a Queen, and Friday Night Lights, and taking advantage of the predictability of travel closer to home, this exploration of history and art in the geographic heart of Texas will visit famed sites we've all intended to visit.





Join friends from the Neill-Cochran House Museum on a trek through West Texas! We will visit Amarillo, Canyon, San Angelo, Big Spring, and Midland, and stay in historic hotels in both Amarillo and Big Spring.


We'll explore the vast vistas of West Texas as we take in historic sites, art and history museums, and enjoy great food and fellowship along the way!
