The Lela Latch Lloyd Museum is dedicated to collecting items of regional interest and chronological value for the Cisco area of West Texas. There are evidences from prehistoric times, Indians, Spanish and Mexican conquests, early settlers, ranchers and farmers, the Civil War, and the town builders in the collection. The Lela Latch Lloyd Museum was the dream of local historian Dr. Duane K. Hale, a friend of retired Cisco school teacher Lela Lloyd (1906-1998). Mrs. Lloyd came to Cisco with her family about 1914. She attended Cisco schools and later became a teacher at Cisco high School and Cisco Junior College. She retired from teaching after 37 years. Lela wrote her 1st book, "Best Damn Teacher" as a memoir of her years of teaching in public school. Dr Hale wanted to commemorate the life of the local author and historian and so named the museum after her. He was the initial incorporator and has invested countless hours in the restoration of the dilapidated building that had served as the Cisco City Hall and as an entertainment center. Dr. Hale was able to get 501-C3 non-profit status for the museum and it survives on tax exempt donations.

Mission: Our goal is to capture the past in the Cisco Tx. area in a way that can be studied & enjoyed through artifacts of the past.

Brit Ferguson took this picture of the original Graham Hospital in 2014. It was torn down not too long afterwards. This building was on East 23rd St in Humbletown. Notice the name Graham Hospital above the doorway.

The Graham hospital

Brit Ferguson "the one on E 23rd Street was privately owned by Dr. E. L. Graham and was the Graham Hospital. Humble Pipeline Co. built an infirmary in Humbletown and Dr. Graham was hired to run it. He bought the infirmary and renamed it Graham Hospital. The one on the west side of town by the high school was named after Dr. Graham and was the Graham Memorial Hospital. Just remember- - first one was Graham Hospital; second one was Graham Memorial Hospital."

Jared, "The laguna hotel all lit up once again
I turned all the lights on, that night so the historical and preservation company could take pictures for the historical society, also I wanted the whole town to see it all lit up, and it was majestic looking, I'm really proud of this place I grew up most my life two blocks behind it and it was always dark and dead looking, but it's alive once more. I love the history and preserving the history of this beautiful town"

Brit Ferguson "The tower was several levels high in its early days. I have in my notes that it was 40 feet high. If so, then the platforms are ten apart. By the 1960s the upper levels had been lopped off. The black and white photo is undated but I'm guessing it's from the 1940s..."
