In 1996 the Somervell County Heritage Center (now known as The Paluxy Valley Archives and Genealogy Society) building observed its 100th anniversary. As part of the celebration, Glen Rose's seventh grade Language Arts and Texas History class undertook a project in which they interviewed the county's "old timers" about life in the pre-nuclear-power-plant era. Jennifer Hadlock interviews Doris Lee Eakin (nee Adams), daughter of George Adams and niece of Bull Adams, the archaeologists who worked on the area's dinosaur tracks. Doris describes the Somervell County of her childhood, describing days when tourists came to the sanitarium and artesian springs. A local artist, she also shows a number of her paintings and talks about the process and meanings of the subject matter, and any history attached to them.
