Carson County Square House Museum

Carson County Square House Museum

The historic Square House, built of lumber hauled from Dodge City in the 1880's, is just one of 21 buildings, galleries, outdoor dioramas, and large outdoor artifacts that make up the Square House Museum complex. Case exhibits and full-sized dioramas tell the story of the Texas Panhandle and its people, from mammoth hunters 12,000 years ago, through the Indian Wars, cattle ranches, and the coming of the railroad in the 19th century, to the oil boom of the 1920s and the region's role in the space program of today. A wildlife gallery and two art galleries add other dimensions to the history.

We hope you enjoy our work.
