The Whitfords will be back in 2013.

Posted by Ann on August 23, 2012

The Whitfords are returning in 2013.  Eldon and Ann expect to arrive in the middle of January and stay  through the end of March.  They perform a free musical program in the museum Tuesday through Saturday evenings.  Saturday night is always Dance Night.  Weather permitting, it is outside under the stars.  Sunday morning gospel music starts at 11.  They play traditional country music, along with some cowboy/western and gospel songs.  It’s great for listening, singing along, and/or dancing.  (There is room in the museum for dancing…we just roll up the rug!)   Check out their website at www.thewhitfordsmusic.com and you’ll get an idea of who they are and what they do.

Spring Break – Desert Flowers

Posted by Nan on March 4, 2011

Spring Break is coming up in the second half of March.   Come on out and take advantage of the beautiful spring weather and the promise of a spring bloom of desert flowers.

With average temperatures for March ranging in the mid-80s to the low 50s the weather doesn’t get much better.

While we don’t have cell phone coverage way out here in the Big Bend, we do have a new WiFi Booster.

Stillwell Knap-In, October 21-24, 2010

Posted by Nan on July 15, 2010

Update on Kinley Coyan: from Ranch News from Nan

A special feature last winter was the appearance of Kinley Coyan, a local rancher who is very knowledgable about archeology.  He has taken graduate level coursework in archeology as part of a life long interest in the topic. He presented a couple of programs in the museum about Native Americans here in the Big Bend area over the last several thousand years.  He used Hallie’s collection of artifacts as well as his own reproductions of arrowheads and other tools as he talked about the history of this area.  Kinley is also a world class flintknapper (arrowhead-maker) who can sometimes be found demonstrating his skill on the Stillwell’s porch.  You can read about him at flintknappers.com .  (He has his own gallery listed.) You can also contact him at mkcattlecompany@bigbend.net.  Watch for him again next year at Stillwell’s… it is a special treat to watch him work and hear him talk about the past here in the Big Bend area.

He is also hosting the first annual Stillwell Knap-In on October 21-24, 2010.  Call the Stillwells (432.376.2244) to reserve a campsite to be a part of this event.  You’ll be able to see several flint-knappers, including Kinley, demonstrating their skills.  You don’t have to be a flint-knapper to participate in this free Knap-In.  (There is no fee for the Knap-In, but the usual camping fees will apply.)   Be sure to allow extra days to enjoy the Big Bend National Park as well as more of this beautiful area.
