Amarillo National Bank (ANB) and the Panhandle-Plains Historical Museum are partnering to bring historical and cultural exhibitions to downtown Amarillo. Specially selected items from PPHM are on display in the Historic Federal Building at 620 South Taylor in Amarillo.
Current Exhibition (Opens December 2019): The exhibition, Queen City of the Plains: Building Amarillo, 1900-1940 focuses on the growth of downtown Amarillo from 1887 to the present. Not much more than a frontier town at the turn of the 20th century, Amarillo grew rapidly into the commercial and cultural hub of the Panhandle.The appearance of the city changed as swiftly as the population, transitioning from simple frame homes and storefronts, to substantial brick and stone structures, to modern office buildings.
The Historic Federal Building and the PPHM exhibition area are open from 8 am until 5 pm Monday through Friday.There is no admission charge.
