The town’s namesake spring once drew buffalo, Native Americans and adventurers –– a dynamic history preserved in the Heritage Museum. This “collection of collections” includes 50 early phonographs, an extensive doll exhibit, plus one of the world’s largest set of longhorns, boasting a 10-foot-6-inch span.
