Berry-Glenn Historical Museum — The depot was built in 1902 on the Hoxie branch of the Frisco RR. The building was originally located where First Midwest Bank now sits. Puxico was a major stop on the line that Louis Houck’s railroad crew built through the swamps from Cape Girardeau southward. The railroad was a large factor in the establishment and growth of Puxico. More information can be found in the Puxico Centennial book, a copy of which is at the museum.
The museum houses many items pertaining to the history of the town and things that people in the area used in their everyday lives. There are exhibits of historical pictures and documents, school memorabilia, antique farm tools, children’s toys and many other items of interest. Special events during the summer include art and photography shows, and the annual quilt show held the second week of August during Homecoming.
