Doss Heritage and Culture Center

1400 Texas Drive


The Doss Center is a dream realized for the Parker County community. What began as the Heritage Gallery - one room inside

the Weatherford Public Library - is now a 23,000 square foot, award-winning building thanks to the hard work of a group of volunteers called Civic Development, Inc. and the dedication of our entire community.


Parker County’s rich tapestry of cattle barons and cowboys, Broadway stars and political leaders is shared and showcased in spacious state-of-the-art exhibit spaces. Along with the three galleries, the Doss Heritage and Culture Center includes event spaces that can be used for a variety of purposes including small concerts, educational programs, meetings, celebrations and events for all segments of the community.

Doss Heritage and Culture Center

The McDonald Cabin and was donated to the Doss by Perry and Barbara Mader.  Its early history shows that A.B. Simpson received a patent for a 92 acre farm in May of 1890. Virgil Young purchased the place from Simpson and B.C. McDonald purchased the property from Virgil Young. The log cabin was originally located down on Grind Stone Creek that was on the back of the McDonald’s property in Millsap and there was evidence it had been lived in at one time. It was moved towards the house and then used as a barn and a corn crib to store feed for their animals. The McDonald girls, Nora Loughrey, Jenella Young and Barbara Mader spent their childhood playing in and around the cabin.
