The Crosby County Pioneer Memorial Museum is a rare jewel in a small museum. The collection that details the past of both Native Americans indigenous to the area and the pioneers who settled the Llano Estacado in the late nineteenth century is housed in a beautifully designed facility of 21,681 square feet. The Museum is nestled “on the square” facing Main Street. It is surrounded by the Crosby County Library, a community gazebo and ample parking. Visitors can tour the museum and still have time to wander around the town square.
The Pioneer Museum is unique in the care that has been given to the development of exhibits and the artifacts of life on the South Plains that the exhibits display. CCPM is the home of over 45,000 artifacts. The displays that visitors can enjoy include:
