Museum Features
The Lefty Frizzell Museum at Pioneer Village not only features Lefty Frizzell but almost all the country western stars from that time period originally from Texas. This memorial is filled with all things country. Lefty's well-known costumes and boots designed by Nudie's Western Tailor are featured prominently behind glass cases along the walls in the first room.

Along with his costumes there are photographs of Frizzell with his wife, furnishings from Frizzell's first home, original song manuscripts in his handwriting, sheet music, records, and "Tootsie's Orchid Lounge" where all the singers ate. Other exhibits in the museum include numerous country western stars' photographs and music, a jacket worn by Hank Thompson, Ralph Spicer items, and a B. Jeff Stone, formally of Nashville, local recording artist exhibit.

Lefty Frizzell
The Lefty Frizzell Museum is a shotgun house reminiscent of the house Frizzell was born in March 31, 1928, in Tucker Town (an oil boom town located a few miles southeast of Corsicana). Frizzell's father, Naamon Frizzell, said Frizzell was always proud to mention he was born in Corsicana, even though he didn't live here very long. Frizzell died July 19, 1975, in Goodlettsville, Tennessee, and is buried in Nashville.

Frizzell's father donated most items and his friend Ralph Spicer donated his suits and boots.
