Terrell County Memorial Museum


category : Museums
The Terrell County Memorial Museum features turn-of-the-century ranch memorabilia which includes tools, implements, clothing and household goods.

The Terrell County Memorial Museum is housed in a structure given to Terrell County by the pioneer Lemons family. Museum displays feature railroad memorabilia, period costumes, cowboy and ranching relics, tools and pioneer furnishings, and mementos of Terrell County History.

The Terrell County history book, now in its third printing, was originally published in 1978. The 747-page book, "Terrell County - Its Past Its People" makes a great gift and is a "must have" for newcomers and anyone seriously interested in anecdotal local history. Copies can be purchased at the Museum, Visitor Center, and the Courthouse. The Museum is operated by the Terrell County Historical Commission.
