Harlingen Arts & Heritage Museum

  Three historical buildings, the family home of Lon C. Hill, Harlingen's town founder; the Paso Real Stagecoach Inn; and Harlingen's first hospital,  have been relocated on the grounds. They are furnished with period artifacts including some that were originally used in the buildings. There are also exhibits in the main building and historic museum. The historical museum was closed for repairs and we did not visit it so this was a very short stop for us.

   The site is partly accessible. The main building is accessible. The Hill house has a good ramp and most of the rooms in the interior are barrier free. The thresholds between the rooms are high which could be a problem for some users. The hospital and inn have ramps. Both buildings have multiple exterior doors which access different rooms. All of them have a high step at the entry and are not accessible because of this. The historical museum entrance appears to be accessible.


   The parking lot has long bus/RV spaces.
