This is a lovely community to visit. The history sites are worth the trip. There are also some beautiful gardens to see. There is a small town feel, but still plenty to do. Our family enjoyed it.

We could have spent hours exploring this abandoned community. It’s a must stop for the curious mind and those who enjoy history. *Beware* of rattlesnake snakes they are there for sure.

VEGA TEXAS is a cute little town with lots of interesting Texas history.

Magnolia Station was the second gas station to be built in Vega in the early 20's. It was restored by the Oldham County Chamber of Commerce and the City of Vega with partial funding from National Park Service Route 66 Corridor Preservation Program.

The Comanche Indians once dominated vast areas of North America—and yet, forced onto reservations, they left little record of their own story. Today a network of 22-foot-tall steel arrows by artist Charles A. Smith marks sites where the Comanches, and their last chief, Quanah Parker, hunted, traded, lived, traveled, and fought. Retrace the footsteps and hoofbeats of the “Lords of the Plains” as you honor their rich culture and history, and learn about a past that is written on the land. One of those arrows is located in Vega, Texas.

Very interesting part of Texas history and the folks working the visiting center are very nice. Its worth the quick little stop while on the road.
