Plains Trail Region

Ten miles west of Crosbyton, the town of Ralls began when John R. Ralls divided his large ranch into 160-acre farms and sold them to Midwesterners arriving by train. Housed in a historic former bank, the Ralls Historical Museum recounts the town’s development through the display of thousands of heirlooms donated by local families. Each of 16 upstairs rooms carries a theme — from farm tools to military mementos, a barbershop and a funeral parlor.
