Fannin county Museum of History is open: April 1 – September 1st Tuesday – Saturday 10 am – 4 pm September 2 – March 31 Tuesday – Saturday noon – 4 p.m.
Fannin County Museum of History picks up the story of Fannin County shortly before the Texas Revolution when Dr. Daniel Rowlett introduced the first twelve families as permanent settlers to the area. It continues through the uncertain years of the Republic of Texas, to the Civil War Era, through arrival of the railroad and the tumultuous beginning of a new century, the jazz age, and two world wars. All of this housed in the restored 1900 Texas and Pacific Railway Depot. In the Museum there is a small but amazing collection of fossils from the prehistoric days of the county. Remains can still be found around the Sulphur River Valley area. I was told that these items could even outdate those at the Smithsonian
Admission is free, donations are accepted.
