    Donna Historic District

    by Basaic Written Jun 6, 2014

    Donna has a nice little historic district with a few buildings of historical and/or architectural interest. I liked this church pretty well.

    Donna American Legion Post (and museum?)

    by Basaic Written Jun 6, 2014

    Donna also has an American Legion Museum housed in the 1920 American Legion Hall. This was the first American Legion Hall built or owned by any post anywhere in the world. The museum was closed up when I visited and I am not sure what the status of it is. Still a decent photo op. This used to be the home of the Donna Hooks Fletcher Museum too. It IS still an active American Legion Post.

    Donna Museum

    by Basaic Written Jun 6, 2014

    In 1910 businessman Garland Buck built a two-story brick building to house a newspaper for the town of Donna. The newspaper went through several name changes before becoming the Donna News then the Donna News-Advocate. The paper went out of businees in the 1960s and in 1969 the Donna Chamber of Commerce bought the building. The chamber shared the building with the Donna Hooks Fletcher Museum which opened in 1974. Today the museum houses a decent collection of photos, memorabilia and other items depicting the history of the newspaper and the town. Included is Donna Hooks Fletcher's bible which reportedly she held in one hand while firing a gun with the other fighting off a group of Mexican bandits, and the bar from the 1914 Blue Goose Saloon. Hours are 9 AM to 3 PM Tuesday through Saturday. Admission is free but donations are appreciated and needed.
