About Hutchinson County

Historical Museum

Hutchinson County Historical Museum preserves this history of the county from ancient times to the present day. Discover the animals that once roamed these plains thousands--even millions of years ago. Take a look at some of the tools the ancient cultures who lived in the area used to protect themselves and feed their families. Imagine the shock Spanish explorer Francisco Vasquez de Coronado experienced when he saw herds of buffalo on what is now the Texas Panhandle that stretched from horizon to horizon. Think about how remote this place was when Thomas Bugbee established the first ranch in the county north of the Canadian River in 1873. How did John and Maggie Weatherly feel when they realized that Ace Borger had made himself a millionaire from his purchase of 220 acres of their ranch? Learn about the important and colorful historical figures that shaped this part of Texas at the Hutchinson County Historical Museum.
