This is a nice museum, run by the locals near the courthouse and downtown area it was in one on the first bank in town, and most of the bank's equipment and areas are still in tack form when it was built. Nice tour guide.

New projects coming will enhance an already terrific museum. Kids love it; adults...More

All in all, a nice presentation of Gregg County's history. Quite interesting setup with the Dalton Gang robbery of the late 1800's being set inside the old bank vault! A little warm in there though. Need a fan to direct some of the cooler air...More
