Bosque Museum

The Bosque Museum tells the story of the land, the people, and the culture of Bosque County, on the western shore of Lake Whitney.

The Horn Shelter Exhibit replicates a Paleo American site found in Bosque County in the mid-1900's. Avocational archeologist Albert Redder discovered the double burial site along the banks of the Bosque River, and spent decades excavating there. He describes the process in an eight minute video, and the site is replicated at the museum.

Another section of the museum contains the largest collection of Norwegian artifacts in the South and Southwest. King Olaf V of Norway visited the museum to view the rocking chair handmade by Norwegian immigrant Cleng Peerson in the 1850's. Other collections on display include textiles, firearms, early Texas furniture, Indian items, and medical equipment.
