This is a beautifully restored and interesting piece of Texas history, now turned into a museum. Built by the Acme and Pacific Railroad (they only got as far as Floydada!) to serve as Headquarters and depot for Quanah, Texas. The railroad was built to service the gypsum industry which was booming at the turn of the 20th century. Take a... More

This two story depot houses many artifacts ranging from household appliances, to newspaper clippings, to clothes. One of the artifacts I enjoyed seeing was an April 1912 newspaper covering the sinking of the RMS Titanic. A section of the museum is dedicated to Chief Quanah Parker. On display is a bow and arrow he made and his flintlock rifle. Another... More

my husband is the great great grandson of Quanah Parker. On a trip to Colorado we decided to drive through the town of Quanah and see what was there. We stumbled upon this wonderful museum and went in to see what was there and visit with the curator. When she found out that my husband was related to Quanah Parker,... More

We also found it closed with a sign on the door "closed for funeral." Anyhow, the hours are 10-3 Monday-Saturday, or call the museum at 940-663-5272 for appointments. It's a stunning two-story building of white stucco exterior, towers, and red tile roof in a Spanish architectural style. A national historic landmark, along with the old county jail on the next...

Beautiful little museum; well kept; very knowledgeable curator on site to orient you to the holdings; pleasant place to stop on a ride through north texas. No fee but they accept and need donations to keep the place nice. First stop on 6 if you are coming from the north last stop before you head out if you are coming... More

Our sole purpose of going to Quanah was to visit the Museum as I have a lot of souvenirs of the Quanah, Acme and Pacific Railroad as my husband's grandfather and great grandfather both worked on the railroad. However, we went to the museum only to find a sign on the door saying it was closed that particular day because... More

Stopped in for my girlfriend. Very nice lady at the desk. Quanah is the last Cherokee chief? Maybe I'm correct. Displays about him and his kidnapped American wife are fascinating. Go upstairs and see Masonic room (spooky) and veterans room. How many boys have died for us in wars?

This museum is in the former railroad depot for a Texas town that once was a key stop on the railroads, but no longer. It has a diverse collection of items collected from town residents about local history, industry, etc. Also some exhibits on some locals who made good: a rodeo champion named Luke Frost and a graduate of the...
