Gregg County was established April 12, 1873 and for the past 58 years, Gregg County Historical Museum has existed to celebrate the events and people that have impacted our area. The museum is committed to preserve the past, magnify the present, and look forward to the future. Since the founding of Gregg County Historical Museum in 1964, we have evolved from a small sleepy town on the edge of the oil field to a city featuring unparalleled education opportunities, fantastic food, and a vibrant cultural arts district. Gregg County and Longview have changed over the past 58 years and the museum is keeping pace. In honor of Gregg County's 150th birthday we are sponsoring a Logo Competition. The competition is open to all high school students living in Gregg County. A winner will be selected by the GCHM Board of Trustees and announced during the Gregg County Birthday Party held during the GCHM's Dalton Days Event, April 1, 2023. One winner will receive a $500 award and their logo will be used by the museum on all marketing materials and signage. The current logo is pictured. We are excited to see what our local high school students create!
