Description: We will be given a guided tour of the Settlers, Rails & Trails Museum in Argyle by Shayne Campbell, its President & Executive Director (and a high school teacher).
Shayne says: "I will give you a tour of our brick exhibition, then we can go to the Museum Park outdoors. The park contains three recently restored heritage buildings, roads, an acre of native prairie, a karst sinkhole. Then people can walk around and take in the sights."
