Bouncing back to the National Ranching Heritage Center, here’s a shot of the Box and Strip House. It gets its name from the construction technique, also known as board and batten, an economical construction method that was popular in areas with very few native trees.
The use of wood enabled early West Texas ranchers to abandon dugouts and live above ground.
The Box and Strip House has four rooms; this is the dining room.
