Morton Museum Of Cooke County

Exhibits at the museum focus on the history of Cooke County and its role in the larger world of the state of Texas and the United States. The exhibits change every two to three months and are based on themes. Themes have included the Civil War, Baseball, Food, Outlaws, the sesquicentennial of the county, WWII, the Gainesville Community Circus, and many more. Erected inside the museum is a partial log cabin dating from the 1870s, which houses temporary exhibits.
