Meridian: Bosque Collection, The Archives of the Bosque County Historical Commission


The Bosque County Collection is operated by the Bosque County Historical Commission. It was established in 1983 as a research center for the local history of Bosque County. The Collection is located in the historic Lumpkin Building across from the Courthouse. This old rock building, built in 1884, was the first stone commercial building to be erected in Meridian. The Lumpkin Building was placed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1998.
