Audie Murphy Day
June 9-10, 2023
Each year, the city of Farmersville celebrates the life
of its' hometown hero, Lt. Audie Murphy, the most decorated soldier of WWII and honors local Veterans
and active military personnel.
The Farmersville Heritage Museum proudly supports this event with extensive exhibits highlighting the life of Lt. Audie Murphy and special WWII exhibits to honor all those who serve our nation.
Join us this year for the debut of the Sister City Pact Exhibition. The exhibit includes the Sister Signing Ceremony highlights and the unveiling of a WWII tank wheel, a gift from our Sister City-Holtzwihr, France. This wheel is from the actual tank that Lt. Audie Murphy stood on while holding off the German soldiers outside of the village of Holtzwihr. Lt. Audie Murphy received the Medal of Honor for this act of valor. Together, we will remember.
