The museum is owned by the City of Sweetwater and Nolan County, with Melonnie Hicks serving as the Museum Curator. The historical museum is available for group tours, luncheons, weddings, etc.
The Pioneer City-County Museum was established by the Nolan County Foundation. The facility serves all of Nolan County and has two employees.
The Pioneer City-County Museum was founded in 1967 by a concerned group of local citizens including Mr. and Mrs. E.A. Hawkins and Mr. and Mrs. Lance Sears. The current site, at the Ragland House, is the third location for the museum and became its home on July 4, 1976.
"The Pioneer City-County Museum is dedicated to preserving the history of Sweetwater and Nolan County for the education of our children," said Hicks.
