Take a moment to examine the interesting stories told on the Christmas trees and learn about Trego County’s long history as a frontier city on the Great Plains, from its early days of settlement to the modern era. A highlight of the tour is the home of the doctor who treated the notable frontiersman Wild Bill Hickock.

Begin your journey at The Studio 128 where you can pick up a map and get tips on tackling this tasteful escapade.    

The “Historic Homes Wine Walk” includes the wine tasting experience and the walking map for $30, plus tax.
