Cutting the Ribbon on a Heritage Tourism Partnership Project: Jeff Davis County Library Terrace Project

During the July 4th weekend, a wonderful heritage tourism partnership project held its ribbon-cutting and dedication ceremony, the Jeff Davis County Library's Terrace Project.

Community volunteers worked to clean up the area adjacent to the historic library building; and added a shade structure, benches, interpretive panels and WiFi, creating a comfortable 24-hour area for locals and travelers alike.

The project was one of the last recipients of the Texas Historical Commission's Heritage Tourism Partnership Grants, and our Texas Mountain Trail organization was happy to facilitate the relationship with the Friends of Jeff Davis County Library.
