Harrison County Historical MuseumMarshall in Harrison County was once a huge cotton center, settled by planters who moved here from other Southern states. Founded in 1841, the town has a wealth of Civil War-era connections, many of which are covered by the displays at the Harrison County Historical Museum located in the Old Harrison County Courthouse. The museum, recently renovated and reopened in the Memorial City Hall Annex, includes over 500 years of Marshall history—the city is actually older than the State of Texas itself! Some of these items include a rare Civil War flag used by a Texas Cavalry regiment (currently being restored) as well as documents and images that describe Marshall's pivotal role in the Civil War.
