Few people can actually believe that the city of Abilene had its origins as a humble stage coach shop owned by Timothy Hershey in 1857. Years later, a maverick settler called Joseph McCoy arrived here with his brood of livestock thus bringing on the nickname of Cow Town to Abilene. Some absolute must-visits are the Great Plains Theatre built in 1881 and the Greyhound Hall of Fame which arouses those interested in gray hound racing. Old Abilene Town is a successful simulation of the original historical precinct with its Georgian, Tuscan and Victorian-style mansions.
