History’s alive at the Official Cotton Gin Museum of Texas, home of the oldest operating cotton gin in America. The Burton Farmers Gin is powered by a 1925 Bessemer engine- the largest of its vintage still operating in the USA! Recognized by the ASME, Smithsonian Institution, National Trust for Historic Preservation and National Register of Historic Places, museum guests are transported to an era that defined the American Spirit. Thousands of visitors from around the world tour the historic cotton gin where it has stood since 1914.
