Freestone County Historical Museum

Brazos Trail Region
302 East Main Street Fairfield, TX 75840 (903) 389-3738

Freestone County history is portrayed in a 125-year-old, castle-like brick building that used to serve as the county jail. The fortress style building was built with local brick and extra thick walls. Two log cabins moved to the museum grounds are open to visitors: the two-story Carter log home, a typical pioneer dwelling that contains a number of original furnishings; and the Potter-Watson log cabin. The museum also boasts a large antique telephone collection.
