• We Remember Duster, Texas In Quilt

    First of all, if you haven’t visited the Comanche County Historical Museum, you are defiinitely missing out on a great surprise because Comanche is home to one of the best small-town museums in the state.

    And in the spirit of saving yet another piece of our Texas heritage, those who attended school in Duster, Texas are excited to have a new room in the museum devoted to Duster and those who once made their home there.

    This past week, Betty Woffard and Ken Heathington delivered a 1938 quilt to the museum for hanging in the Duster room, and Texansunited.com learned the scoop on it!

    It seems that all the way back in 1938, the Duster High School basketball girls embroidered their names onto quilt blocks. Then, Mrs. Evert Huddleston sewed the blocks together and quilted the whole thing.

    And today, the quilt hangs in a museum. We just never know do we?

    About Fredda Jones

    Fredda Davis Jones was raised “in the country” in Comanche County and learned very early that creativity and innovation are traits that can flourish even in small-town Texas and that with enough effort, indeed nothing is impossible, including being married to the same man for over 40 years! Rickey and Fredda have 2 children, 5 grandchildren, and a crazy life that includes sitting in the bleachers several times a week. The rest of her time is spent creating great content for texansunited.com and marketing small-town Texas.

      Betty, what a wonderful memory. And the great thing about you, is that you are sharing this with everyone. Your school story could fit many places, just change the school name and we are going back in time to our early school days. Thanks, and thanks for your help at the Museum. We will do more things soon in the “Duster” room. Thanks, Missy Jones, Museum volunteer
