Our History

The Llano County Historical Museum is located on the banks of the Llano River, just north of the Roy B. Inks Bridge. The Historical Museum was originally Bruhl's Drugstore, founded in 1900 by Louis H. Bruhl. It was given to the Historical Society in 1965 by the A.H. Bruhl family. During renovations, the facade was altered, but the interior, including the marble soda fountain and leather fountain stools, remains intact. An annex to the building was originally an early day grocery store.

The museum is open Wednesday - Saturday, 11:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. Please check the website or phone us for Special Exhibit hours.

Our Museum Display

The museum features exhibits that include the geology of the area, farming and ranching activities, clothing and textiles, mining, the development of business and the military service of our citizens. An extensive polo exhibit honors the internationally famous Llanoite, Cecil Smith, who for twenty five years in succession held a ten goal handicap, a record equaled by no other in the history of polo. A restored log cabin also graces the grounds.
