  • Join the Panhandle-Plains Historical Museum as we debut our newest historical artifact, a Fox “F” Grade shotgun, owned by former president Teddy Roosevelt. It was presented to Roosevelt by the president of the Fox Gun Company, and one that was used on the 1909 Smithsonian African safari, the most famous of all African safaris of America’s most accomplished hunting president. The family of Jason Roselius wished to ensure the donation of this artifact to PPHM, as Roselius always wished for it to be. There will be a public and media ribbon cutting at 10:00 am.
