Originally built as the First Church of the Community, this former Methodist/Episcopal Church building became the Liberty County Museum in 1969. Now on the National Historic Registry, it is part of a growing museum complex, which houses and cares for a collection of artifacts and other objects of scientific artistic, or historical importance and makes them available for public viewing through exhibits.

The mission of the Liberty County Museum and Archives Association, Inc. is to provide and preserve historical archives for past, present and future community members of Liberty County and the surrounding areas of Liberty County in the most accurate and responsible ways possible.

The museum complex consists of but is not limited to the following exhibits: homesteading, farming, ranching, medical, military, businesses, depot, school house, organizations and much more.

Share the blacksmith’s backbreaking work, sit in the sheepherder’s wagon, and imagine a trip behind a horse pulling the plowshare! Take time to peruse through the collection of pictures, obituaries, weddings, local historical books, scrap books, year books, and artifacts.

Open 1-5 and 7-9 daily from mid-May to Labor Day
Located three blocks south of Highway #2
