Spearman may be a small town, but our culture is abundant. What strikes people first is the J.B. Buchanan Vintage Windmill Collection, operated by the Southwestern Pioneer Windmill Association. This arrangement of more than 70 historic windmills is a beacon for both visitors and homeward bound residents.
There are also a number of historical landmarks serving as reminders of what put Spearman on the map. At the Adobe Walls Battleground, two epic face-offs are observed: one in 1864, in which Col. Kit Carson narrowly defeated the Kiowa and Comanche Indians, and another in 1874, when Indians under Quanah Parker advanced on buffalo hunters only to retreat at the sharp-shooting of Billy Dixon, earning him a Medal of Honor. At the Charles Lindbergh Lands, behold where the legendary aviator landed on a cross-country trip. And at the Stationmaster’s House Museum, revisit the North Texas and Santa Fe Railway terminus that started it all in Spearman.
Spearman offers plenty of recreation and leisure activities as well. Enjoy a day of golf, skateboarding, or hunting at Palo Duro Lake. And then, at night, unwind at the Lyric Theatre, where a movie can take the person out of Spearman, but never Spearman out of the person.
