Study Club President Patricia Weldon became irritated one day about a year ago when she overheard the answer to a question that there was nothing to do in Stephenville.

“I thought, ‘What can we do about this?’” Weldon said Wednesday at the Erath County commissioners court meeting. “So I formed a committee and made this my president project.”

It has taken about a year, but Weldon has unveiled a Historical Interest Map that will be placed all around the city — the Stephenville Historical House Museum, Chamber of Commerce, Greer’s and soon, the Tarleton State University Welcome Center.

The Study Club received help from the city of Stephenville, Chamber of Commerce and former Tarleton professor Dr. T. Lindsay Baker who had his students record historical areas in the county.

“Dr. Baker gave us the book and helped explain it to us,” Weldon said. “He told us not to do too many more than 24 places because that would be too much to see.”

Here are the places listed on the map:

1. Stephenville Museum Complex

2. The Crow House

3. The Cage House

4. Erath County Courthouse

5. Crow Opera House/Chamber of Commerce

6. First National Bank building

7. Cowboy Capital Walk of Fame downtown plaza

8. Stephenville Public Library

9. Stephenville Parks & Recreation Hall

10. Erath Arches

11. Trogdon House

12. West End Cemetery

13. Old Doc’s Soda Shop

14. William T. Miller Gristmill

15. Dublin Rodeo Heritage Museum

16. Dublin Historical Museum

17. Ben Hogan Museum/Early Commercial building

18. Gallagher House

19. Clairette Schoolhouse

20. East Memorial Cemetery

21. Mt. Olive Cemetery/Cornelia Graves

22. Bluff Dale Suspension Bridge

23. J.F. Warnock Hardware

24. Morgan Mill Tabernacle

25. WK Gordon Center & Museum of Industry

26. Thurber Smokestack

“(The Study Club) did a field trip to go see them all and we learned some wonderful things about this city,” Weldon said. “We’ve raised enough money that we are going to be able to supply quite of few of these maps from now on.”

The map was also made digital where folks can click to learn about each landmark and print their own map by visiting

“We do have a great community and a great county,” said County Judge Tab Thompson. “This is a great project.”
