XIT Museum More Than Just XIT

Everything you want to know about the XIT Ranch and the XIT town is in Dalhart.

The XIT museum is the home of countless records, pictures, and documents from when the Panhandle region was the biggest ranch in the world.  But don't let the name "XIT Museum" fool you.

Curator Nick Olson says, "the museum houses more than just XIT. We cover a lot of things, from before the Dalhart area was settled and it's actually a lot bigger than it looks."

The museum was put together in 1975 and allows you to watch history unfold in its depiction of life in Dalhart since before settlement began. One document even dates back to 1525.

You can look through newspapers, clothes, shoes, ranching materials and other things.
