This district, six city blocks centered around the Farmer's Market at 8th and Ohio Streets, is a journey back through time to include a visit to the Littlest Skyscraper, the Railroad Museum & Route Building, the Museum of North Texas History and historic Holt Hotel. While visiting, take time to shop in the many amazing antique malls and stores, then eat lunch at Gidgett's Sandwich Shack or Casa Manana, both favorites of the locals here. Historic happenings at the Farmer's Market site include the first anniversary of Wichita Falls in 1883 where Quanah Parker, the last Comanche Indian Chief was in attendance. This is also the site where two bank robbers and murderers were lynched and hung by an angry mob in 1896!
