About this Exploration:

A hidden treasure, this museum is one of the most comprehensive in the Southwest! It features everything from farm machinery to dolls and antique clothing and hats. 

An authentic sod house was built on site in 1958 and the sod cutter that was built to cut the sod is featured here as well.
  The sod house has now been covered to protect it from the weather and the building features a beautiful mural painted in the summer of 2009.   

Room vignettes show you what it was like to live in Edwards County through different times in history. 

Also featured on the grounds is an old church built in 1881, a steam engine, rest stop and playground equipment, and even the World Famous Midway USA Sign! 

A permanent Santa Fe Trail Exhibit tells of our proud history in the settlement of the Wild West.

Come and visit us!  But don't stop in a rush because you will get so caught up in the wonder of our history that you will lose track of time.

Open May-September Monday-Saturday 10 a.m.-5 p.m.; Sunday 2 p.m.-5 p.m. For tours by appointment in winter, call 877.464.3929.
