The O-S Ranch Museum, created by late mayor Giles McCrary, was built to house the art and artifact collection he gathered during his travels around the world. It is a mini-Smithsonian featuring works by many southwestern artists.

The museum also holds cases of Faberge eggs and ivory carvings from the Far East.    

Museum director Marie Neff said that the museum speaks to the heart of what McCrary was all about.

"His passion was collecting. But, the nicest part about what he did was not that he went to shops and collected things. He went behind the scenes and collected the culture of the people in that country," Neff said.

The exhibits within the O-S museum change three times a year, so there is always something new and different to see when visiting.
