Rare 40 Star Flag

Fort Davis' Overland Trail Museum tells the story of the settlers in that mile-high community in the Davis Mountains.  Included in their collection is this rare 40 star United States flag.

The Museum is housed in an 1883 house built on the old Overland Trail route. Exhibits include artifacts on ranching life, Native American lore, early surveying, law enforcement, photography, medicine and early trades such as quilting, music, crochet and ladies apparel.
