Our History

The Weslaco Museum began and remains a community project.  During the 1960s, city leaders called for the collection of stories and artifacts from prominent business and families - a collection that served as the basis for a book published on the City’s 50th anniversary.  After the celebration, those same city leaders sought to find a permanent home for the collection.  And so in 1971, the Weslaco Museum was formed.  From a private residence to the public library and now on the main street of the City of Weslaco, this community project has continued to grow throughout the intervening decades.
