Meers Store and Restaurant
"A Historic Dining Establishment"
On May 23, 1901, a group of miners met at the base of Mt. Sheridan, near where the present cedar grove is located, and organized a mining district. Out of respect for the first prospectors in the area, the miners named their camp Meers after Colonel Andrew Jackson Meers, who in 1989 found mineral rich quartzite outcroppings near the site.
The Meers Store is located on highway 115, 1 1/2 miles north of the Wichita Mountain Wildlife Refuge, where in 1927 the U.S. Forest Service gathered 20 cows and 3 bulls to save the Texas Longhorn from extinction.
Take I-44 to Hwy 49. Travel West about 4 miles, to Hwy 58. Turn to the North for about 5 miles to the turn-off to Meers (follow the signs). Now turn to the West for 4 miles and you're there.
