Welcome

The History & Culture Center is Williamson County’s first state-of-the-art, interactive exhibition space dedicated to telling its comprehensive countywide history. The Center is available now for private events, however, public exhibits are planned to open in the Summer of 2023.

Envision The Experience

Surrounded in historic brick and hardwood décor with beautiful archways and stairwells that help you traverse into distinct thematic “rooms,” The Center will transport guests to different environments within its 6,000 square feet and three stories. Multi-sensory experiences will leverage the latest immersive technologies to wrap you in the sights and sounds of our history through interactive touchscreens, projected videos, audio accents, and tactile artifacts.
