Welcome to our online museum.
Pull up a chair and come on in to explore Southlake’s rich history.

Thanks to all those who braved the “ghosts” at our lively cemetery tour Nov. 13.
See Cemetery Tours, below, for details.
In this picture, children read Malinda’s Hill’s headstone at the 2017 Lonesome Dove Cemetery tour. Malinda was at Parker’s Fort when Cynthia Ann Parker was taken by Comanches. When Malinda died in 1870, her son hand-carved her headstone.
