About the Museum

Barnard’s Mill Art Museum is a facility owned by the Somervell History Foundation. The Art Museum is a part of historic Barnard’s Mill. The mill was the first permanent structure in the Glen Rose area.

The museum building was a gift presented to the Somervell History Foundation by Richard H. Moore, Jr. of Fort Worth. Mr. Moore purchased the building in 1979 and began a 7-year restoration project on the mill, the cotton gin, and the Marks-English Hospital Building. The restoration was completed in 1982 and the Somervell History Foundation was named the recipient of the Mill Complex.
