Willacy County Historical Museum
The Costume Room, as it has been dubbed, was recently refurbished by local ranch owners , Stella Zarate, and her daughter, Monica Burdette. From World War I and II uniforms to Mary Bertha Garcia Mallett's ornate ball gown worn in the 1956 Fiesta de San Jacinto in San Antonio, the room contains many interesting items. Dressed mannequins don exquisite hand-beaded gowns and trains worn during Corpus Christi's Buccaneer Days celebrations and Laredo's Washington's Birthday celebrations, among other events. A stroll through the room allows the visitor to imagine the pomp of the coronations represented by the local girls and the military representation from young men of Raymondville. Other collections and displays in the museum are noteworthy as well, this is just one of the many. Visitors are welcome Saturday mornings or Wednesday afternoons to spend time in this historical treasure house. Come by so you can "See it to believe it!"
