About The Bosque County Collection

The Bosque County Collection is operated by the Bosque County Historical Commission. It was established in 1983 as a library, archives, and research center for the local history of Bosque County. Its mission is to collect and preserve historic as well as current materials about the county and make them readily available to researchers. Valuable and irreplaceable historical materials pertaining to Bosque County have been saved by the Collection. Many of these historical materials are not available anywhere else. 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. Help support the Bosque County Collection by becoming a member or donating research materials.
