River Valley Pioneer Museum
About this Partner
The River Valley Pioneer Museum located in Canadian, Texas offers a rich collection of Julius Born's photographs of Hemphill and surrounding counties. The collection represents the people, the land, and the community at a time of rapid growth spurred in part by the arrival of the Santa Fe railroad and the designation of Canadian as a division point. Early education including the development of the Canadian Baptist Academy is chronicled in group photos as is the advent of the W.C.T.U, rode and other organizational events.
