Dr. E. M. and Mrs. Harp homestead 1890s

In the 1890s Dr. E.M. and Mrs. Harp at their panhandle homestead in Hale Co., Texas with their children, dog, cow, and chickens. Dr. Harp was one of the first physicians on the high plains. Since there were no roads at that time, he plowed furrows radiating from his house so patients could find their way to his home office on his ranch. The lumber for the house was hauled by wagon from the rail terminal in Amarillo. . . .
