Prearranged tours of the Lexington Lob Cabins and Heritage Center feature guides costumed in period clothing and demonstrations of pioneer crafts, two of many reasons to visit this interesting example of Texas lifestyle circa 1850. Located in the middle of downtown Lexington, the Center highlights two log cabins and a corncrib, once instrumental in the lives of early pioneers in the region and now carefully reassembled on Center grounds. The Center is a non-profit educational association with a mission to collect, preserve, and interpret the history of northern Lee County. The log cabins help to interpret and archive this history, and feature authentic furnishings and artifacts of the era including tools, kitchen utensils, firearms, furniture, and tack. The Center and its exhibits also reflect the main activities of the era, farming (including raising cotton) and open-range ranching, at a time when settlers, arriving from parts north, were required to share the region with earlier human inhabitants, the Tonkawa Indians.
