Open every, Thursday, Friday, and Saturday 9 a.m.-noon & 1-5 p.m. and at other times by appointment.

        The museum is located in the old Santa Fe Railroad Depot depicted above. It was built in 1928 and served in that capacity until its closing in 1982. In the fall of 1984, the museum moved into it from the old Anthony High School Building, thus affording better accessibility for the handicapped and elderly with its ground-level entrances.

        The eight rooms depict life in Anthony and the surrounding area in the late 1800's and early 1900's permanent and rotating displays. Our permanent displays include a bedroom and other memorabilia of four generations of the Small family, a parlor, a music room, clothing room, kitchen & laundry room, hospital room, nursery, and a large assortment of farm implements, and machinery. Exhibits that rotate are collections of all types, civic and service organizations histories, transportation & communication, and school displays. There's also an ever-expanding collection of railroad memorabilia.
