The Weslaco Museum began in this stone building during the 1960s. The museum later relocated next door to the library on Kansas Avenue, where it was housed until it relocated to the current location at 500 S. South Texas Blvd in 2008.
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.
