What an amazing piece of the LMAWM’s History!
Thank you for sharing John Ford!

I thought that the Museum might like this old video - I recorded this with an old VHS 2 piece video recorder back in 1980 -1981 time frame. This is of the museum when the National Park Service was helping the City maintain the display through an agreement. I did a bunch of work on the aquariums.

Borger Independent School District

Administrators wanted to share how proud they are of the students at Borger High School. On Friday, students were released to the staff parking lot so they could honor Sgt. Meddock as his funeral procession passed by the high school. We have never been more proud of our students as they stood silently for the entirety of the procession with their hands over their hearts. They could not have been more respectful. When the last car passed, well passed the dismissal bell, the students remained standing with their hands on their hearts until the staff turned to re-enter the building.

General information

Located just 30 miles northeast of Amarillo near beautiful Lake Meredith in Fritch, Texas this museum offers six realistic dioramas featuring local wildlife in their natural habitats depicting the rock, soil, plant life and seasons that occur within the Texas Panhandle.
