    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. Ashleigh Downing interviews Weldon Hart, a long-time teacher in the Glen Rose schools. Through their discussion, Hart paints a vivid picture of what it was like to grow up in Glen Rose in the late 1940s and 1950s. He provides details about playing sports, going on dates, and listening to rock and roll music, as well as the impact of the nuclear power plant and the changes that it brought to the community.
