On October 10, 1871, Mackenzie's 4th Cavalry came face-to-face with Quanah's Comanche band in a battle that began to open the West to settlement.
The Llano Estacado was the hunting grounds for Comanche, Apache, Kiowa, and other tribal Indians. Over 25,000 archeological pieces representing these cultures are housed in the Wayne J. Parker Center.
The 1870s saw an influx of Anglo settlers onto the Great Plains of Texas. While still a hunting ground for Native Americans, it quickly became the last stopping place for Anglos seeking land and yearning for adventure!
Archeological remains of bison and mastodon that roamed the Great Staked Plains thousands of years ago are found in CCPMM's West Wing.
