Pioneer Townsite Museum

The museum complex was started in 1977 when the Frederick Rotary Club and Tillman County Historical Society joined forces to save and move the one-room 1902 Horse Creek School from its original site in the northeast part of the county to a new location in Frederick. In 1996 the museum became affiliated with the Oklahoma Historical Society which coordinated renovations to the 1902 Frisco Depot and reformulation of the museum to repesent a rural townsite in the 1920s. At that time the museum, formerly the Tillman County Historical Museum, was renamed the Pioneer Heritage Townsite Center.
