The museum is part of the Frisco Heritage Center which contains historic buildings that have been restored plus a steam locomotive and wooden caboose.

Whether you are a long time resident or new to the area, you and your family will enjoy a visit to the Frisco Heritage Center and Museum. Take a stroll through the site or enjoy the view from the gazebo, we invite you to come and see a piece of history.

Today is the 75th anniversary of D-Day, when "more than 160,000 Allied troops landed along a 50-mile stretch of heavily-fortified French coastline, to fight Nazi Germany on the beaches of Normandy, France. Gen. Dwight D. Eisenhower called the operation a crusade in which, “we will accept nothing less than full victory.” More than 5,000 Ships and 13,000 aircraft supported the D-Day invasion, and by day’s end, the Allies gained a foot-hold in Continental Europe. The cost in lives on D-Day was high. More than 9,000 Allied Soldiers were killed or wounded, but their sacrifice allowed more than 100,000 Soldiers to begin the slow, hard slog across Europe, to defeat Adolf Hitler’s crack troops."
The U.S. Army remembers June 6, 1944: The World War II D-Day invasion of Normandy, France.
