The Jack County Museum is home to artifacts related to early life in Jack County, as well as a vast collection of military exhibits, 4-H memorabilia, Jacksboro High School mementoes, along with cemetery records and genealogical records.  On site is a restored 1880’s log cabin, a collection of early farm implements an out-building filled with pioneer life necessities.

In 1907, Tom Marks, the first county extension agent in Texas, organized the first boys’ “Corn Club” in this very home to teach new agricultural methods to 25 boys. The Corn Club became the forerunner of the 4-H club in Texas. Marks’ work in agriculture has been recognized by the United States Department of Agriculture.

The Jack County Museum Judy Rayborn Annex is currently under construction. It will be located at 200 West Belknap.

"Among the county's most famous stories is the impact Tom Marks, a jack-of-all trades former county agent, had on the area's farming and agriculture. Marks helped introduce newer, more efficient farming methods to the area through the sons of older farmers in the early 1900s when their fathers refused to listen to his ideas." - Times Record News
