Buffalo Gap Historic Village was founded to preserve a part of the early
West Texas heritage of the Abilene area.
At the time of the Civil War, this was still Indian country. The Indians
shared it with the buffalo and the rattlesnakes. A favorite buffalo run was
through the big gap in the Callahan divide. After the hunters killed the
buffalo, the Indians left. Settlers and outlaws came to the area because of the
abundant water, large trees, rich soil, and good ranching available. This was
where Buffalo Gap was established.
Among the 19 buildings preserved in the Buffalo Gap Historic Village is
a log cabin, which is the oldest structure in the area. The first courthouse and
