Big Well Museum Building - Feb '07

Here's how the museum used to look -- under the carport that says "Big Well" with the area is a skylight at the top of the well. The building to the left, with the neon OPEN sign, is the entrance to the well. Inside is the 1,000-pound pallasite meteorite (once the world's largest) found in 1949 by H.O. Stockwell using a war surplus metal detector in the Brenham strewnfield just east of town. You can just see the hood and front tires of my Jeep in the parking lot at left.
