Agricultural Historical Museum
For over 125 years, farmers and ranchers have been the backbone of the community. This museum, a tribute to that history, was created. Located behind the Chamber of Commerce offices on LeBlanc Street, the museum houses authentic antique tractors, farming equipment, photos and the airplane that planted the first aerially-seeded rice crop in Texas. In addition, the Winnie Sante Fe Depot, which was established in 1905, has been relocated alongside the Agricultural Hisotrical Museum. The Agricultural Historical Museum is open for tours by appointment. (409) 296-2231.
