Doss Heritage And Culture Center

The Doss Heritage and Culture Center brings Parker County’s past to life in its historical gallery. Visitors will get a special look into the life led by early inhabitants of Parker County. The first exhibit shows the lifestyle of the Native Americans who lived across the central and west Texas area. Just around the corner, the exhibit moves into the beginning of the settlement in Parker County. Text and graphics explain the conflicts between Native Americans and incoming settlers. A few feet further is a glimpse into the life led by the pioneers who moved westward into Parker County, focusing on the agricultural and domestic activities Parker County residents would have engaged in. Examples of locally grown crops shows the variety of plants farmers could harvest from the soil, including cotton, potatoes, corn, and watermelon.
