Phillips County was created by the State

Legislature in March of 1889 and named

in honor of R.O. Phillips, Secretary of the

Lincoln Land Company.  Through the years,

our steadfast residents faced many challengers

including the Great Depression and the Dust

Bowl.  Phillips County Museum is proud to

house the documents, pictures and artifacts

of the people, businesses and organizations

who helped build our communities that have

remained firmly rooted on the Colorado Prairie.

We invite you to visit the Phillips County Museum

to explore the exhibits that tell the story of

Phillips County’s pioneering residents. Step back

in time as you enter the one room school house,

complete with desks, chalkboard, readers and even a wood stove. 
Enjoy our extensive collection of domestic appliances that were “better than sliced bread” in their day. 
Explore how farming techniques have vastly developed from the horse drawn equipment and see our display of old implements.
Learn about the thrilling Haxtun Bank Robbery in our picture exhibit.
