Love this "museum"! An original log house, school house, doctor's office w/original tools, living quarters, etc. This is a must see!

Stumbled across this while ago by accident. What a neat little place. Must visit! It certainly is a labor of love, and worth supporting!

The Tomball Museum Center is a wonderful place to explore the history of Tomball, Texas. Early in December each year there is a Candlelight Tour that is a must-go-to for anyone!

Toured the center as part of a photography group so I had the unique opportunity to be able to photograph in the church and school house as well as on the grounds.

Weddings, receptions, and meetings are conducted there on a continuing basis. Our Trinity Lutheran Church is a popular wedding venue, adding a nostalgic charm to any ceremony.

Visiting this area often, we always see improvements being accomplished and yet they do so with keeping the History of Tomball in prominence. It is not too far and a nice day outing.
