This structure was built in 1978 by the Lincoln County Heritage Trust. It was transferred to the Hubbard Museum of the American West, and subsequently donated to the Lincoln State Monument in 2006.
The building houses the visitor’s center and is the central museum of the Lincoln Historic Site complex. It is a non-historic building with exhibits ranging from prehistoric inhabitants of the valley, to the Apaches, Fort Stanton and the Lincoln County War. Adjacent to the Visitor Center are the jacal exhibit and the tuberculosis shed.
The Anderson Freeman Visitor Center is open daily from 8:30 am to 4:30 pm, except on New Year’s Day, Easter Sunday, Thanksgiving and Christmas Day; and offers an informative video of Lincoln’s history as part of the tour of the museum.
