Some pictures:

The Depot Museum Complex houses the Rusk County History Museum and the Children's Discovery Center. Clustered on four acres are nine restored buildings from the county's past. The restored cabin and homes from the 1880's bring yesterday to life.

Also located on the grounds are a turn of the century printing shop, country doctor's office, reconstructed barn, broom shop, red caboose and syrup mill. The restored 1901 Missouri-Pacific Depot consists of two parts: the waiting rooms, station master's office and the cotton warehouse which has been converted into an innovative children's learning center.
