Exhibits & Tours

Nestled on 3 acres adjacent to the Bosque River, the Stephenville Historical House Museum consists of 12 nineteenth century structures furnished with period furniture and artifacts. Buildings include several log cabins, a ranch house owned by John Tarleton (founder of Tarleton State University), a rock cottage, a two-story Victorian house, a chapel, and a school house. There's even a two-hole outhouse!

The museum grounds are open to the public all day, every day for self-guided tours.

Guided tours, including tours inside most structures, are available during office hours. Please make reservations for large groups and classes.

Admission is free, but donations are greatly appreciated (upkeep of the historical structures and production of new exhibits are made possible only through donations).
