Martha Long to speak at Museum Annual Membership Meeting

By Lynn Blankenship

Martha Gilliland Long will be the featured speaker at this year’s annual meeting to be held Sunday, June 4th at the Father’s House Fellowship Hall, 704 E. Commerce St. beginning at 2:00 p.m.

Martha will share the history of the Schleicher Ranch where she and her husband, Hudson, have lived since their marriage in 1958.

In 2006, she published this history in “Cabin on Cherokee Creek.” This well documented book is filled with first-hand accounts of cattle drives, many of which began on the Schleicher ranch. Their ranch house and the 1850s stone cabin are located by the springs that are the headwaters of Cherokee Creek.

Martha, a retired Llano County Extension agent, has also authored or edited books about Llano County history.
