The special place is located in the historical First State Bank Building from 1912. The Clovis-Big Dry Creek Historical Museum is nice enough to display and maintain historic artifacts and photos and even have a special military room to honor our US Veterans.
There’s even pictures of Clovis High graduates from way back in 1903 all the way through to 1965. With over 380 Clovis families in their albums.
This museum has over 10,000 visitors a year and is open from 10am – 2pm Tuesday through Saturday. If you need a special arrangement and would like to visit at a more convenient time for your group give them a call at (559) 287-3033
This is what the clovis-museum.com says they do:
Our museum prides itself in our displays of artifacts from our Clovis township history and the families of the surrounding areas that have created our “Clovis way of life”. This history not only celebrates the immigrants to the area from the mid-1800s, but also the local natives that used the area for their livelihood. A separate part of the museum honors our Clovis Veterans of WWI, WWII, Korea, Viet Nam, and the Gulf Wars.
At the time of writing this post they have these Historical Blankets for sale. They only have 4 left. They’re really popular due to the Clovis Centennial, and they make a great Christmas or Birthday Gift for that special someone.
