Paducah ISD students took part in a unique Halloween activity last Monday night. To help the Cottle County City County Heritage Museum celebrate Halloween and encourage visitors to the museum, students helped bring the exhibits to life by dressing up as early Cottle County residents. An “old-time” dentist and his patients, a table full of card-playing cowboys, a hair dresser giving a perm with a permanent wave machine and even Texas politician Bill Heatly could all be found on Halloween night at the museum handing out candy to the trick-or-treaters.
The open house drew a large crowd of not only youngsters but also adults who browsed the various rooms of the museum enjoying some of the new displays the museum has to offer, including the Paducah schools exhibit.
