Museum was very well laid out and signage was excellent! Had interesting artifacts and information we'd not seen elsewhere! Volunteer on duty was very welcoming and well informed. Glad we made the trip! Nice antique stores in walking distance on town square.

This historical landmark is full of Texas history, American history, and Cleburne history. What impressed me the most is their personal tribute to the hands of women who worked in Cleburne. They had about 12 women cast... More
