ABILENE, Texas – History books can only tell us so much about the men and women fighting on the front lines in combat. The Buffalo Gap Historic Village’s new exhibit, Letters Home, allows the soldiers from World War I to tell their own stories through their personal letters home to their friends and family.

Read the handwritten letters sitting next to the uniforms and war memorabilia from West Texas soldiers. Take a moment to write your own letter to a soldier fighting in today’s conflicts; the Buffalo Gap Historic Village will mail it for you. The exhibit opens, Sunday, November 11, at 1 p.m. Hours for the exhibit are noon to 5 p.m. Sundays and 10 a.m. to 5 p.m Monday through Friday. On Veterans Day, Nov. 11, all current and retired military and their families receive free admission and a private early viewing of the exhibit at 11 a.m.
