Pearce Collection is a real ‘must see’

Both the state of Texas and Ellis County are full of rich history, but some events and cultural aspects need more recognition than a 900-word article can provide.
Museums are great institutions in the service of society and in its development. A nearby museum showcases the artistic imprint western culture has had on America as well as an impressive collection of letters, diaries, journals, images and artifacts featuring first-hand accounts from the Civil War.
The Pearce Collections Museum, which is made up of the Pearce Civil War Museum and the Pearce Western Art Museum, is located on the Navarro College campus only a short drive to Corsicana. With 17,000 Civil War artifacts and more than 200 pieces of American Western artwork the Pearce Collections Museum is another golden nugget that makes this region shine.
If you have not yet made a trip to the Pearce Collections Museum we suggest you make it a family affair that will have your children asking questions about history and the entire family appreciating the beautiful works of artists such as Howard Terpning, Kenneth Riley and James Ayers.
The Pearce Collections Museum right now is a secret we want to share with our readers.
General admission is only $8 and less for students and seniors. Don’t let this opportunity to enjoy our culture’s history and art pass you by.
