Quanna Parker Trail
Following the paths of Comanche Chief Quannah Parker and his people across Texas, the Texas Plains Trail Region commissioned Texas artist Charles A. Smith to design and construct 22-foot-tall steel arrows to mark sites where the Comanches and their last chief hunted, traded, lived, traveled, and fought. One of these arrows is installed adjacent to the Garza County Historical Museum and another sits near the entrance to the Terrace Cemetery east of Post on Highway 380.
