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.
âWe wouldnât be the communities that we are if it wasnât for those families who pioneered it all,â 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.

Anyone, regardless of whether theyâre an Aggie, is welcome to attend.
