Several families have made an impact in the history of Howard and Glasscock counties, which is why the Heritage Museum continues to pay tribute and recognize pioneer families.
â€śWe wouldnâ€™t be the communities that we are if it wasnâ€™t for those families who pioneered it all,â€ť Museum Director Nancy Raney said.
This year, two families sharing the same last name but no relation were honored as the Howard and Glasscock County Pioneer Families â€” G.R. (Rob) and Myra Robinson were recognized for Howard County and W.L. Robinson was honored from Glasscock County.
