The museum building was donated to the town of Wilbur in 1977 for the use of an area museum, honoring the early pioneers of Almira, Creston, and Wilbur. The building and museum are managed by the Big Bend Historical Society, the members, and board of directors (15). The board is comprised of people from all three towns.
The museum has much to offer. Come and take some time for a pictorial journey through our colorful history; find your old teammates or distant relatives! Discover newspaper articles from the Wilbur Register preserved on microfilm and ready for you to have printed. Hometown of Wilbur’s celebrated founding father who earned the nickname “Wild Goose Bill”.
The museum includes a “farm annex” with old equipment, cattle brands, cars, wagons, and much, much more.
Some say a picture is worth a thousand words. So take a tour of the Wilbur museum.
