Over 100 years ago, leaders determined themselves to create a legacy and a place for their families to live and prosper for many years to come and laid the first rail of many connecting Amarillo to the outside world.
Fast forward to 2013, when businessman Tom "Bub" Warren saw a need for this history to be preserved for generations to come. Our natural beauty was clear to the eye, but what about the behind the scenes history of Amarillo? The men and women who made this town thrive and prosper through tornadoes, the Dust Bowl, the Great Depression, through economic crashes. Through the ups and downs, we as Amarilloans survived and that legacy needed to be preserved and remembered.
So, Mr. Warren set out on a quest to create the place where people from all over the world could gather together to celebrate and remember the history of Amarillo, Texas. And just as Amarillo, Texas started with one rail, so did the museum collection.
