A small frontier village in the middle of Del Rio, Texas


* We invite you to visit us here at the Whitehead Memorial Museum. You will find our museum a delightful and educational experience for the whole family!
* Unlike many other museums, our exhibits consist of several buildings, each a historical significance in itself. The Whitehead Memorial Museum is dedicated to the preservation of Del Rio's heritage as well as Val Verde County's.
* The museum came to life in 1962 when the Whiteheads, a noted local ranching family, purchased the old Perry Mercantile building (shown above) and donated it to the City of Del Rio and Val Verde County, to be utilized as a museum. Since that time, the museum has grown to include 20 exhibit sites, which occupy 2.5 acres of beautifully landscaped grounds.
* This is an open-air museum with a portion of the San Felipe Irrigation Canal flowing through the middle of its property, which is part of the original irrigation system built in 1871 - it insured sufficient water for crops.
