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. Matt Jones interviews (Tommie) Louise Berry about her life in Glen Rose. She moved to the area from Ft. Worth in the 1970s, first living in a trailer in Dinosaur Valley. She talks mainly about the changes brought by the power plant and her involvement in the community, including working at the post office and becoming Dinosaur Valley State Park's first female ranger.
