Olton: Sand Crawl Museum


Sand Crawl Museum, Olton TX

MUSEUM CRAWL  This extensive museum, housed along with the Olton Area Library in a repurposed hardware and lumber store, focuses on the history of Olton and Lamb County with many buildings full of unique exhibits. Named for the sand crawl formations south of town, the museum features a series of murals and exhibits on the history of farming, ranching, and daily life in the area. Outdoor exhibits feature windmills, farm equipment, a half-dugout house and replicas of sand crawl formations, along with a Quanah Parker Trail giant arrow marker commemorating the area's undertold Native American heritage. Along with the Littlefield Lands–Duggan House Museum in the nearby county seat of Llittlefield, the Sand Crawl Museum captures the story of this remote, rural corner of Texas.
