Taylor County accepts ownership of Buffalo Gap Historic Village


ABILENE, Texas - A historical landmark in Buffalo Gap is now under the ownership of Taylor County.

Taylor County Commissioners voted Tuesday to accept the transfer of property for the Buffalo Gap Historic Village, County Judge Downing Bolls told KTXS.

The McWhiney History Education Group manages the village, which features buildings dating back to the 19 th century.

Bolls said the county itself won't be in charge of overseeing operations at the village, adding that an agreement with property operators will not be finalized for a few more weeks. Bolls said the arrangement will be similar to the county's ownership of the Taylor County Expo Center.

A formal contract will provide more details about the county's responsibility for the village, Bolls said.
