The 10,000 square foot brick, concrete and steel Museum devotes 4 of its rooms to items used in the daily lives of the early ranchers and homesteaders, those who later beat the double burden of the Depression and Dustbowl, and those who witnessed the emergence of the modern Panhandle. A large 5th room displays chipped stone tools, grinding stones, pottery and other items used in the more ancient lifeways of Native Americans in the region. A 6th room is devoted to exhibits of paleontological and geological items, while an adjacent 7th room presents history, economy and ecology of the area. An 8th room provides a small gallery for local artists, displays of art from the museum’s collection, and traveling exhibits.
