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. Renee Brown interviews local historian Novella Wilson about her childhood in Glen Rose. Novella provides a detailed illustration of rural life and downtown Glen Rose in the days before electrification of the area.
