On Saturday, October 22, the city of Blanco experienced a bit of history in the making. If you did not have a chance to make it out to the grand opening and the ribbon cutting for the Buggy Barn Museum, you missed a wonderful fun-filled day. From the live music by some of the local gentlemen who really kept the day moving, to the chuck wagon outdoor lunch that included a wonderful Buffalo Chili. It was simply delicious. Last, but by all means not least, there was the amazing display of many buggies and wagons that seem to come straight out of an old western film. The Buggy Barn Museum is a proud member of the Blanco Chamber of Commerce who provided a fine ribbon cutting ceremony.
If you can make it out to the Buggy Barn Museum which is located in the beautiful Hill Country in Blanco, Texas, just north of the main town square, you and your family will not be disappointed. The museum offers a range of buggies and wagons dating back from the 1860s. Several of the buggies and wagons have been used in major motion pictures such as the re-make of “True Grit” and “There Will Be Blood.” They have all kinds to look at from a stagecoach, to doctor’s buggies, Studebakers, and a hearse. Of course, this is only a sample of all the ones that are on display. The museum also has many gifts for sale, such as coffee cups for grownups to coloring books for the children. They are also the proud owners of K and D Carriages, which provides carriage rides for weddings, parties, or any event you would like to have a horse and buggy. Feel free to contact the Museum for more information either by e-mail: buggy firstname.lastname@example.org or by phone: 830-833-5708.
