Mason: The Mason County Museum

An 1887 school building houses the Mason County Museum, where extensive displays interpret fort history and county development. One display features the travel trunk of John O. Meusebach, founder of Fredericksburg and peacemaker with the Comanches. Another chronicles the 1875 Mason County Hoodoo War, a local cattle rustling feud.  Tours may be arranged by calling Nancy Jordan at 325-347-6674.
