Blanco Pioneer Museum

The Blanco Pioneer Museum opened in the Pat Ryan Building in 2009. The building, located in the Blanco Historic District at 418 Pecan Street, was recently restored. Just a block off the Courthouse Square, the museum is used for genealogical and historical exhibits and events.

The first exhibit was "American Living — Then and Now" and featured many items, which premiered on October 2, 2009. The lovely, restored house was furnished as it would have been in the mid-1800s, with beautiful antique furniture and accessories, loaned by many for this exhibit. Older adults reminisced about the use of many of the items and could share that information with the youngsters who attended, so they could see what pioneer life was back then.

The museum's second exhibit was World War II. With artifacts from all over, including uniforms, flags, newspapers, photos, and much more, the museum provided a glimpse into the past.

The museum's third exhibit, which opened September 8, 2012, is Western Heritage.
