National Bird Dog Museum
The National Bird Dog Museum is a repository of information, art, photography, and memorabilia. Artifacts exhibited reflect a variety of pointing dog and retriever breeds, hunting, field trial activities, and shooting sports. Here the tangible reminders of more than 100 years of sporting tradition await your exploration.
The goal of the museum is to represent the many breeds of sporting dogs, the early history of the National Field Trials, which continue to be held annually at the Ames Plantation, and a bit of the history of Grand Junction itself.
The effect of these efforts is a place where history comes alive. Visitors can also stay informed on the winners of modern field trialing and sport dog champions.

Little Courthouse Museum
The county seat was established in Bolivar and this two-story log 20’x30′ courthouse was built in 1824. The building contained a courtroom downstairs and a jail room above.
In 1827 the log courthouse was moved several blocks down East Market Street to become the nucleus of a home for the Levi Joy family.
Next, Judge Barry purchased the log building house. In 1849 his widow sold the house to Dr. Thomas E. Moore. He made extensive additions including painted weatherboard siding, shutters and additional rooms. His family resided in the house for over 100 years.
The descendants of his granddaughter, Miss Jennie Hardaway, sold the house to the county in 1967.
The Courthouse now houses memorabilia and artifacts related to the history of Hardeman County including a wedding dress from 1874, Jefferson Davis’s chair, a knife collection, a quilt display, antique furniture and clothes and so much more.
