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.
