About Outlaw Trails Historical Museum

The Outlaw Trails Museum is divided into sections including local history, commercial, railroad, outlaw, political and Native American. There are wartime items including swords and bullets; and other items such as antique typewriters and wheelchairs. The museum covers about 2,500 square feet and has other sections dedicated to the Civil War, Teddy Roosevelt’s visit to the area in 1905 and the Butterfield Stage. There are even items in connection with the Titanic. “We have the first printing press in Grayson County, too,” said Mayhugh. “And we have cameras of all kinds; some among the first cameras.” According to Mayhugh, other areas include currency, mortuary, sciences, industry and business colleges. The Hall building is also on the “National Registry of Historic Places.” “One of our most popular is the ‘Toys through the Years’ display,” said Mayhugh. “We have a little bit of everything.”
