Alpine Big Bend Historical Museum

Now known as Museum of the Big Bend, the museum is located on a hillside and constructed of native stone and located on the campus of Sul Ross State University.

The main floor contains the central exhibit hall of pioneer and other historical materials, plus an exhibit of fossils, flora, and fauna of West Texas, and a hall devoted to Indian relics. The construction of the museum was made possible by Centennial Commission funds, a Works Progress Administration project, and the contribution by the Sul Ross State Teachers College. The museum is located on Avenue B and North Harrison in Alpine. http://www.sulross.edu/~museum/

Author's Note: As you continue along the Centennial trail, it is pretty obvious that my best descriptions are the ones of the museums I have seen myself. So, if you have been to any of these, please tell us about it! Send your description to me at sarahreveley@grandecom.net
