T.B. Ferguson Home Museum

T.B. Ferguson Home Museum

T. B. Ferguson, Elva and two sons came to Watonga in October after the Cheyenne and Arapaho land opening in 1892 to publish a newspaper, The Watonga Republican, which is still in print today. Along with the 1901 Victorian Home there is the original Watonga jail. The artifacts on display in the home and on the grounds were donated by families in Blaine County.

Who We Are

​The Friends of T.B. Ferguson Home Museum is a nonprofit organization that seeks to preserve the T.B. and Elva Ferguson Home, jail, and relay station as Historic Land Marks and interpret the early day lifestyles of a politician, newspaper owner, and pioneer from the establishment of the Cheyenne and Arapaho land opening in 1892 up to 1947.
