The New Ag II Building

Construction Began in April and Completed in September

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. Plans are for it to be more that just a big warehouse of vintage equipment. 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.

2:00 pm - 4:00 pm
