In January of this year, Taylor County commissioners voted unanimously to accept the transfer of ownership of the Buffalo Gap Historic Village to the county, through which a newly formed nonprofit organization presently operates the collection. Depicting rural Texas life from the 1880s to 1920s, county commissions believed that preserving the heritage of the Buffalo Gap Historic Village was a necessary thing, and too important to pass up. In an interview with the Abilene Reporter-News, Commissioner Chuck Statler identified, “The commissioners court felt that maintaining the history of Taylor County for future generations was a good opportunity for us. Being able to receive this property and make sure for the future that we can take care of the old courthouse and the old jail and some of those facilities is going to be important to maintain our heritage and our history for the citizens of Taylor County.”
