North Texas History Museum preserving history through Project Nat’s Hat

WICHITA FALLS (KFDX / KJTL) – The Museum of North Texas History strives to preserve the history of the area with a unique exhibit to showcase not only the history of the North Texas area, but the people as well.

Nat’s Hat Project features over 500 used hats and tells the story of former hat owners. The hats have been on display in the museum’s heritage room since 2007, thanks to many members of the museum’s board.

The backstory for this project began when Cow Lot Western Wear closed in 2006. Owner and Clay County native Nat Flemming donated the hats to the museum for display.

The museum is looking for people who have a hat on display in the exhibit and who want to tell their stories to continue the preservation of history in the North Texas area.

Chief Executive Officer of the museum, Madeleine Calcote looks forward to the community learning more about the hats and the people they represent.

“Nat’s Hats is the heart of the museum’s collection, and we look forward to hearing more about the extraordinary people represented in this collection of hats,” Calcote said.

If you have a hat in the exhibit, you can contact the Wichita County Archives at (940) 723-0020 or email them at [email protected]
