The New Ag II Building

Construction Began in April and Completed in September 2019

This historical museum building was acquired in 2002 and displays items that were once stored in 5 locations with no public access. The large adjacent Agricultural Warehouse Building opened in May, 2010. In 2016, the historical society was able to purchase property across the street. An additonal Agricultural Building was constructed on this site in the summer of 2019. Visit our museum often to see newly acquired artifacts. Our helpful volunteer staff is very willing to answer questions about the displays in the museum and Richardson County history.
Many improvements and additions have been to the displays within the three buildings. We are anxious to share.

 We welcome visits by appointment and group events. We have volunteers who will be happy to show you around.
