Thank you for visiting us in Pampa, Texas. The White Deer Land museum is located on the main street at 112 S. Cuyler. We are located in the two-story restored office building of the White Deer Land Company.
The Land Company built this building in 1916, and the corporation was dissolved in 1957. The building has the original tin ceilings, tile floors, and much of the furniture used by the Land Company officers. This museum is one of the few left in the Texas Panhandle that has guided tours, because most of the artifacts are in the open and in a room-like setting.
It is situated just as the co-founder of the museum wanted it to be; a friendly, homey atmosphere. There are two floors filled with wonderful, well-cared for, furnishings and period clothing. It’s a great place to spend an afternoon where you can step back in time.
Admission is Always Free!
Don’t miss this place! Fascinating history with a beautiful presentation. I haven’t learned this much in a single trip to a museum in a long time. Something for everyone here. Great for a rainy day or just a relaxing activity between visits to Pampa. It is really a wonderful museum!
I had the pleasure of accompanying the 5th grade students from Travis Elementary to the Museum last Wednesday. The program was interesting, informative, creative and fun! They loved the art project, the staff was patient with their energy and we all had a great time!
A great local museum to learn the history of the area and people surrounding Pampa and Gray County. Educational for all ages. Guides provide anecdotal information and stories based on personal experience or lore handed down through family and friends as well as historical facts.
