Van Alstyne Historical Museum Has A New Location

Wednesday, November 1st, 2023 was the incredibly well attended ribbon cutting for the new location of the Van Alstyne Historical Museum at 130 N Waco St. in Van Alstyne.

This home was built around 1890 on the east side of town and was moved to its current location a few years later. It is a wonderfully appropriate setting to host the Van Alstyne Historical Museum and is a “museum within a museum” as Mayor Jim Atchison explained.

The museum is open Tuesday, Thursday, and Saturday from 1pm – 3pm. Private, group tours can be arranged with museum Director, Teddie Ann Salmon, 903-814-1735. Parking is plentiful at the new location and it is conveniently located between the Van Alstyne Public Library and the Van Alstyne US Post Office.
