Audie Murphy/American Cotton Museum

600 Interstate 30 E, Greenville, TX 75403

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.
