Historic Attractions

Menard has a legacy of rich historic attractions. The ruins of the Presidio de San Luis de las Amarillas built in 1757 and Fort McKavett built in 1852 give you a unique glimpse into our Texas heritage. The Menardville Museum is housed in the old Santa Fe Railroad Depot building (built in 1912) and displays local history.

Other sites include the Old Sacred Heart Catholic Church (1899), the Christian Church (1905), Bevans State Bank (1903), the Australian Hotel (late 1880’s), the Old Mission Theater (1927), and the Luckenbach Store (now home to Burnham Bros, 1903).
