January came to an end and with it so has this year’s Journey Stories at the Three Valley Museum. The last installation of the month long event was held Thursday, Jan. 30.


The event which was held every Tuesday and Thursday in January, explores the area’s history. The last Journey Story of the year focused on cowboys and horses.


It was an evening of horsemanship, cowboy poetry and song celebrating the heritage of western Oklahoma.


The evening began at 5:30 with Patrick Latona speaking on horsemanship and providing insight on various spurs and bits used for taming horses.


Ron Wallace then entertained with poetry connecting nature, history and his family’s journey into the southeast.


Dave Nichols and Nancy Ferris followed by telling stories of the old west and singing cowboy songs around a mock camp fire in the museum.


The evening came to a close with the crowd singing “Happy Trails” and enjoying homemade biscuits with slices of sausage and cowboy cobbler.
