Located downtown, the Midland County Historical Museum, holds wide-ranging artifacts on county history from prehistoric times to the 20th century. Midland’s ranching heritage unfolds in displays of saddles, hats and tack donated by local cowboys. A historic photo shows a locally made 1911 “aeroplane” now on display at the Midland airport. A unique artifact is the heavy wooden door of the early 1900s Pliska Blacksmith shop on which branding tools were tested.
