City of Freeport opened the doors to it's Historical Museum on Saturday, September, 26, 2009. The museum is located at 311 East Park in downtown Freeport.
There is a model of the old swing bridge and the light house that was located in old Velasco. Currently, the 3,000 square foot building has a media room and a conference/meeting room in addition to the main room with pictures of local history.
We are currently under expansion to enlarge the museum. If you would like to support this expansion by donation, please download the Museum Expansion Informational Packet for more information.
