WELCOME TO THE PHILLIPS COUNTY MUSEUM
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.
