It was a success! Thank you to the group of volunteers who came out to our Historical Marker Restoration Workshop today, who included members of the City of Wichita Falls Landmark Commission, Midwestern State University History Departments, and the City of Wichita Falls, Texas, Government (City of Wichita Falls Planning Department), who helped us organize this event. The marker at Ohio Street Bridge got a new lease on life. Thank you to the William G. Pomeroy Foundation who graciously sent us some books to aid in the marker restoration process. Thank you so much!

Dating back to the1940’s, 1950’s and 1960’s, Wichita Falls was a Hot Spot for Musicians. Those making music were able to perform, make a recording, or get a booking right here in the “City That Faith Built”.
One would think that with such a rich history in the music industry, we could have coined the title “Wichita Falls City Limits”.
Cynthia Smith, librarian at Hirschi has donated 30 yearbooks to the Archives, making our collection almost complete. Hirschi Biology teacher, Delbert Todd donated his collection (1963-1991) about a year ago. Now we only need the year 2000 and the upcoming years of 2023 & 2024 to be complete. The Archives will be working to get a full set of yearbooks from all 3 high schools before they close. The Wichita County Archives is dedicated to preserving our local history.
