SNYDER, TX (KCBD) - At the Scurry County Museum, ever-changing exhibits offer a look into the past and what has made Scurry County what it is today.

"It's great for local visitors who are really trying to learn more about their own history, but regionally, too," said Erika Jayne Christian, the Educator at the Scurry County Museum. "We've got a lot of things that kind of pop up in other small towns here in Texas along with the ranching, along with the buffalo history. So I think just about any visitor who wants to know more about Texas or our region or our area in specific can definitely come and visit us."

Many of the museum exhibits focus on a wide span of time from the 1870s when Anglo-American settlers came to what is now Scurry County.

Buffalo are also a big part of the exhibits.

But the museum doesn't just include history from hundreds of years ago.

"We're always trying to find ways to engage the public with Scurry County regional history as well in new and fun engaging ways," said Laurel Lamb, the Curator for the museum. "Not dry around here."

The museum also features a specific exhibit that focuses on the 40 rural schools that once dotted the county.
