Tales N Trails Museum

Museum Exhibit or ProgramFor centuries, people have traveled through what is now known as Montague County. They traveled by foot and by horse and by wagon. Eventually they traveled by rail and road. Permanent settlement was slow in coming, but with the establishment of Head of Elm (now Saint Jo), the county soon began to grow. Every individual who passed through left their footprints in time. It has been a long time dream of the citizens of Montague County to have a place to showcase the mementos of their history. The Tales 'N' Trails Museum provides the perfect repository for the relics and artifacts of the county's past. The Museum opened its doors in 2010 after fifteen years of planning and fundraising. Funded primarily by local donations, the Museum was built on land donated by the heirs of Joe Benton, an early pillar of the community. The Museum houses hundreds of Native American artifacts and European trade goods from the vast collection of Texana of the Joe Benton family.
