Where is CCPMM located?

CCPMM has two locations. Our main campus, 101 West Main, is on the town square in Crosbyton, Texas on Texas Hwy. 82/114. The Ericson Farm & Ranch Museum is one block away at 221 East Aspen St.

An 18,000 sq. ft. history museum with artifacts primary from Crosby County, Texas. The Hank Smith Room contains the history of the earliest Anglo settler while The Wayne J. Parker Center for Indian Studies contains American Indian artifacts. Two additional areas, the Walker Wing and the McCurdy Room explore the development of Crosbyton, Texas; a dugout room shows living conditions in the late 1800s on the Texas Plains. In addition, the museum contains a 6,000 sq. ft. auditorium used for civil affairs and can be rented for reunions and other events.

Summer Saturdays at the Museum. In 2016, the museum initiated a summer fine arts program with courses presented by the Lubbock Caprock Quilters Guild and the Amarillo Weavers Association. In subsequent summers, the museum has hosted classic-movies, fibre-arts classes, and painting classes.

Quilting classes have proved a perennial favorite with beginning and intermediate classes projected for Summer 2020. Painting classes will be taught in the summer of 2020. Fibre-arts enthusiasts can look forward in 2020 to demonstrations in dying wool, spinning and weaving, and guerrilla knitting (Yard Bombing).


In addition to museum space, the building complex contains a 6,000 sq. ft auditorium used for civic events and several smaller rooms, along with a kitchen, all which can be rented.

We are a design and fabrication shop that encourages play in museums, organizations and brands so they may spread the roots of their mission. Play is a powerful tool because it tests assumptions, makes connections and establishes a positive emotional memory to concepts. Incorporating play (interactives) in your project can actually boost diversity, loyalty and engagement which will ultimately strengthen your mission.
