High Cotton

Come by to see our newest exhibit: High Cotton: Farming in Williamson County.

Drawn to the rich blackland soils in the eastern portion of Williamson County, early inhabitants farmed the land. The soils in Williamson County are some of the finest farmland in Texas. The landscape is rich with trees and rivers and creeks. Settlers, foreign and American, arrived in Texas in the 1820s seeking that fertile land and a better life.

The Williamson Museum is open Tuesdays through Saturdays from 10am to 6pm.
