The Ralls Historical Museum was established in 1969 in The John R. Ralls Bank Building, a two story Texas Historical Landmark. Community volunteers, working together, renovated the eighty year old building making it a unique showplace for the more than 12,000 items showcased today. Every organization in Ralls participated in restoring the twenty rooms making them ready to exhibit artifacts from Ralls and Crosby County communities.
The second floor consists of a long hall flanked by small exhibit rooms on either side which houses significant historic memorabilia. The street floor is a spotlight of familiar family names and community history. It has a special focus on veterans of the area, displaying mementos, uniforms and photographs of county veterans from the Civil War through the Vietnam War. Flags honor each branch of the services.
The Museum is open Monday through Friday
