Welcome to the website of the Roscoe Historical Museum.
Our goal is to make available a large number of photographs and other materials that reflect life in Roscoe as it has progressed and developed over the years.
If you have old photos of Roscoe or the immediate surrounding area suitable for inclusion here, please scan them in and send the copies to me. Especially welcome are photos of the downtown area, the school, and civic activities like parades and carnivals--and photos from all decades are welcome, particularly those from the 60's and earlier. Send them to me at firstname.lastname@example.org. If you have too many to send as e-mail attachments, let me know, and we can come up with one of the other methods of delivery now available online.
Images of relevant documents that reflect the life of the community are also welcome.
If you live in Roscoe and don't have a scanner for your photos, let me know, and I'll be happy to scan them in on mine. I'll be careful not to damage any of them in the process and will return them as soon as I'm done.
Photo of the Week: Every week the site will feature a different photo, one that has fascinating detail and shows something distinctive about the city of Roscoe. It will have been restored and enlarged for detailed viewing. After being featured, photos of the week are archived so that viewers can still access them.
Historic Photo Slideshows: These are slideshows of historic photographs of Roscoe and surrounding area. Slideshows are presented by decade. The early decades are already available. Others will be posted when finished.
Roscoe, Snyder & Pacific Railway: These are pages devoted to the history of the RS&P, a nationally known short line that had a great impact on the community during its 77 years of existence: 1907-1984.
