Overland Trail Museum in Fort Davis

Tucked in front of Sleeping Lion Mountain, a few blocks from downtown Fort Davis (on Fort Street) is the Overland Trail Museum.  
The Museum is housed in an 1883 house built on the old Overland Trail route, and tells the story of early life in Jeff Davis County.  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.
