Old Red Museum

Old Red Museum

From the establishment of settlers' sites in the 1840s, through fifteen decades of growth and expansion into the modern era, one theme remains constant: Dallas County has been a magnet for people of vision who find this area a source of unlimited opportunity. The history of Dallas is the collective story of people of determination and faith who built a metropolis, one of the world's greatest, here on the North Texas prairie and this story is told by the Old Red Museum.

We hope you enjoy our work.
