The loom was given to the museum by a man from Tennessee. He told the history of the loom and that it belonged to his grandmother who lived in Coryell County. The loom was made from a hardwood from the area of the present-day courthouse. At the time it was brought to the museum it was in pieces wrapped in a blanket. The pieces were then restored with only one piece missing. The Harrisville Designs graciously donated a piece to take the place of the missing reed.
In the display area is a list of some of the ways yarn was prepared, and some of the plants from which the dyes were made. Go by and look at this interesting piece of history.
