"This is an excellent museum of Old Greer County, TX. It has a real dugout house and the 1929 Fire Engine that kids love. I may be partial since this is my home town but it is very well done in the old hospital building with a 40's dental office, birthing unit and nursery. Furniture from local homes, hotels, the small town schools. Very interesting! This whole area is very historic!"
