Fayetteville Area Heritage Museum

I am Docenting today at the Fayetteville Area Heritage Museum which is located at 1119 N Washington Street on the historic square here  in Fayetteville Texas.    The museum was establisehd in may of 1986 by Janette Donaldson, Louis “Buddy” Polansky and his wife Irene.  I love spending time here.  So much to see and learn about the rich Czech and German peoples who settled in this area.

The Museum has Archival programs that include Acquisitions, Preservation, Oral History Collection, and Research, and they have Educational Programs such as Permanent and Rotating Exhibits, Demonstrations and Genealogy.

The hours vary but the Museum is open most Saturday’s from 11 am to 2pm.  There is no Admission but Donations are appreciated.  Children 12 and under must be accompanied by an Adult.  There are Free tours for School Groups available.
