Welcome to the
History of West Museum website!

Our Mission:

To explore, promote, and preserve the history, heritage and culture of the people of West and it's surrounding communities.

About us

The History of West Museum is located in historic downtown West, Texas. (See Geo. W. Brown building in the photo at the right).


In March of 2013, the Museum Board of Directors purchased a historic building in downtown West, Texas for the museum. Presently, renovations are being made to this building, which was built in 1896.

Planned exhibits will showcase the early ancestors, businesses, churches, city leaders, farming and ranching, and the impact of Czech culture on the town.

The museum would not be complete without a tribute to the heroes of the April 17, 2013, fertilizer plant explosion.

The History of West Museum is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization. Donations are greatly appreciated.
