Abilene’s Must See Historical Landmarks

The Rail Road Brought In Everything that Helped Make Life Easier
photo by: Rudy Fernandez

Abilene started out as a rough and tough wild-west kind of town. It was made complete by the hotels, the railroad, saloons, dancing ladies and a real wild-west shoot-em up gun fight on Pine Street.

That infamous gunfight that involved Wild Bill Hickok and left three dead, one of which was his deputy happened in front of Wooten Grocers. It’s not always been the peaceful and charming West Texas town that it is today.

Now, here are some landmarks that helped make Abilene what it is today.
