Visit the Hinton Historical Museum to view the progression of washing machines from the scrub board to the wringer washer, seven antique cars from a 1903 Oldsmobile to Model Ts and Edsels and bicycles from an 1870s high-wheel to models from the 1960s.   The museum also features a daily photo presentation of the "California Road."   View wagon ruts left in Red Rock Canyon State Park, located just south of museum, along this trail's pathway through Caddo County.  While there, hear the romantic story of how the Rock Mary mound, located three miles west of Hinton, was named by the first immigrant party to travel this southern route to California with a military escort.
