These are difficult and uncertain times for all of us. While the Audie Murphy/American Cotton Museum has temporarily closed its doors for the safety of staff and visitors due to the COVID-19 virus we are still hard at work behind the scenes and continue to find new ways to share our amazing collection to visitors virtually until we can safely re-open.
WHO ARE WE?
The Audie Murphy/American Cotton Museum is located in Greenville, Texas and we cover the fascinating history of Hunt County. Join us on a journey of discovery that will take you through the heyday of the cotton fields in the 1800s to the battlefields of the 20th Century. Greenville is home to the world's largest inland cotton compress which set a world record in 1911 and in 1912! Hunt County is also home to Audie Murphy who was the most decorated combat soldier of WWII and after the war went on to become a well-known actor. Discover all the people, places and things that helped to make this county unique. Take a look at our youtube channel at https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCIczvDD-aWVrBHJAt8f4PvA as we continue to upload virtual tour episodes of the museum.
