Hello and welcome to Historical Bytes. I am Shannon Gillette and I am a freelance writer who happens to be passionate about history. In 2009 we moved home to Montague County and are thrilled to be able to live on the farm that has been in my family since the late 1800s. Adjusting to country life has been anything but dull. I am a volunteer at the Tales N Trails Museum in Nocona, TX where I have the opportunity to delve into Montague County’s history on a daily basis.
