The La Vernia Heritage Museum includes exhibits on the Suttles Pottery, Mueller Bridge, the Gonzales Road, Susanna Dickinson, the Cibolo Crossing at La Vernia, Train Track Tales, La Vernia Fire Department history, Chihuahua Street Merchants and more. The newest exhibit opened March 2016, "The Cotton Pickin' Truth About La Vernia" chronicling the cotton era which built the community. A 35 minute documentary, "Hope In High Cotton" by LostTexasRoads.com featuring local cotton farming history and lives, is available for viewing at no charge. Admission to the museum is free. The best way to see our museum is to schedule an appointment, even on short notice, and arrange a tour for the time you have. Call us at 210-392-3281 to arrange an appointment. We love groups! We are also open on the first and third Sundays of the month from Noon to 3pm. We hope to show you this surprisingly exciting museum -- soon!
