A little background information:

The Toole County Museum of History and Art was formerly the home of Mrs. “Strannie” Fulton.  Her son, William Fulton, Jr., deeded the home to Toole County for a museum; the artifacts were moved to the home in July 1977.

The house, décor and grounds created an ideal location for the Toole County communities’ participation and enjoyment.  Each year, there are many visitors and former residents who visit our unusual museum.

There is something for everyone at the Marias Museum of History & Art!
