Colorado City gets arrow as part of Quannah Parker Trail!

A giant arrow representative of the Comanche tribe has been erected on the grounds of the Mitchell County Hospital, to commemorate the Comanche Indians domination of the Panhandle area.  Documentation for the project was done by Patti Pharris, Director of the Heart of West Texas Museum.  

Lynn County sculptor and artist Charles Smith of New Home donates the free outdoor sculptures through the Texas Historical Commission to counties where the Comanche tribe was known to have traveled, hunted and lived.

Local dignataries pose with the arrow.
