Spring Historical Museum

About Us.

The Spring Historical Museum, founded in 1995 by the Spring Historical and Genealogical Society, serves as a repository for artifacts that represent the evolution of North Harris County. Here you will find examples of tools used by German farming families as well as ornate documents that commemorate their life events – weddings, births and baptisms.

There are many photos of and artifacts from the railroad that brought the town to life. You’ll also have a look at a massive saw blade and equipment from lumber mills that ultimately built many of the houses, some of which are still standing today, and are a short walk from the museum.

You will also learn of the rich history of the oldest African-American community in North Harris County, established in 1887. There are stories and photos of the schools, churches and businesses built by this tight-knit community.
