Our Mission

The mission of the Friends of the Museum is to work with and assist the staff of the Gaines County Museum in creating a microcosm of life in Gaines County, from its indigenous and geological past to the present. This includes the history, prehistory, people, and institutions, and their cultural and economic development. 

It is also our mission to represent the five cultures, three languages, and economic development.of...
1.  The Comanche
2.  The Ranching and Farming early Pioneers (Anglos)
3.  The Hispanics
4. The Black Americans from whom the city derived its name
5.  The German-speaking community (Mennonites)
