Snyder in Scurry County, Texas — The American South (West South Central)
Abilene-area sculptor Terry Gilbreth created this original piece. The likeness of Quanah and his traditional attire were authenticated through extensive research. The Diamond M foundation, The legacy of C.T. And Claire McLaughlin, provided funding for this sculpture.
A part of Scurry County history, Quanah Parker is a perfect symbol for the mission of Western Texas College. This tribute to Quanah Parker was commissioned in 2011 on the centennial of his death.
