Incredible!

I've been traveling here for 13 years and didn't know the history of Audie Murphy. The funniest thing is that I served in the military for 22 years!

Although Audie Murphy was born in Kingston, Texas, this nice memorial is easily accessible right off Interstate 30 in Greenville, Texas. The museum and other dedications are worth the stop as well. I visited Veteran's Day and I may have appreciated it more. Stop and get coffee and pastries at Collin Street Bakery if your going east from Dallas for... More

This is a neat little museum offering lots of information about cotton farming in Hunt County, Audie Murphy, the most decorated soldier of WWII and items from the Civil War to Vietnam. The gift shop has a lot of books and other items for sale. I would recommend this museum.

Greenville, Texas is about 40 miles east of Dallas on Interstate 30. Audie Murphy was from the area. This is a very nice and worthwhile museum dedicated to Audie Murphy both for his military contributions and for his movie acting career. The museum also includes some additional local history such as Monty Stratton, a baseball player from the 1930's who... More

I am a history buff and have always enjoyed museums. Sometimes small, personal museums are are just as good as the big ones. This museum is nice little gem. I wish I had had a while longer to just linger. I'll go back sometime.

This museum is dedicated to the military heros of Hunt County, in particular Audie Murphy, and to the industry that put it on the map, cotton. It is full on interesting artifacts and interactive areas. You will leave understanding more about the county and a feeling of gratitude towards those who created it.
