1879 Jail CellNick Summers - author

Visiting the open to public Taylor County History Center also known as the Buffalo Gap Village is like stepping back in time. The original court house from 1879 complete with the original court room and jail plus the cannons too! Black smith shop with all the tools of the trade. The first pioneer log cabin ever in Taylor County. Even a old school house with the desks! This place is located at 133 William St. Buffalo Gap, Texas. Which was also once the county seat too.

This amazing place has a full gift shop that’s reasonably priced and you can even Airbnb a historic home across the street. My favorite part of this Historic Village is the old sheriff‘s house you can walk through that’s all original and full of relics that will blow your mind!

There is so much to do around the village and activities for young and old. It’s definitely worth your time to come and see this place for yourself. Its one of my personal favorites and I have been here many times. I even found out the walls of the court house are filled with old cannon balls! How cool and crazy is that?! If your ever passing through West Texas this must be on your bucket list to come see for yourself. Won’t break the bank either and the staff are super friendly and it’s also dog friendly as well!
