Audie Murphy/American Cotton Museum
The Audie Murphy American Cotton Museum was established in 1987. Cotton was Hunt County's largest cash crop in the early 20th century, and the museum features a "History of Cotton Exhibit". Much of the focus of the museum is dedicated to military veterans. Medal of Honor recipient Audie Murphy (1925-1971) was born in Hunt County and worked in Greenville before entering the military. In 2012, the Audie L. Murphy Memorial VA Hospital in San Antonio transferred its collection of Murphy-related memorabilia to the museum for its permanent collection. The museum sponsors the area's annual Audie Murphy Days, usually scheduled in June.
