Denver City Heritage Museum

The dream of the late Hazel Akin and Billy Ray Moore, the Denver City Heritage Museum began in 1984 in one room of the former elementary school. It was incorporated on March 11, 1985, and as interest and the number of donated artifacts grew, the Museum was moved in 1991 to the east end of the building and given five showrooms, a quilting room, storage room and office. As interest grew and the condition of the building began to be a concern, a new independent site was erected in the fall of 2015 at 117 N. Ave B. Also located outside the building is a giant arrow depicting the Quannah Parker Trail. The museum is open Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday from the hours of 1:00pm to 4:00pm. Learn more

Yoakum County Golf Course

Although Yoakum County is located in a semi-arid part of the lower Texas Panhandle, the city is fortunate to have a well-manicured 18-hole championship golf course that offers an enjoyable game of golf to any level of player. Located approximately 6 miles north of Denver City on Highway 214, the course was established in 1965 and developed as a 6,600-yard plus, par 71 course, offering year-round play. Holes complement the natural lay of the land and feature. Learn more
