The Spellman Museum has a separate gallery and meeting space which houses temporary
or rotating exhibits in display cases. These exhibits relate more detailed information about
Forney families, specific events, or collections of photographs and artifacts. They offer the
museum a chance to display additional artifacts outside the main gallery and
explore topics in more depth than the permanent exhibits.
Rotating Exhibits currently on display:
- Backyard Archaeology – examining some of the historical artifacts unearthed in the residences and businesses of Forney.
- Prominent Women Run Forney – based on newspaper article in Dallas Morning News 1960s.
- Adams Drug Case – displaying medicines, photos, and promotional materials from Adams Drug and Edwards Drug.
- School Namesakes – brief bios of the teachers some of Forney’s schools are named after
- Jim Johnson – long-time coach and educator with FISD and boy scouts
- Criswell Farm – artifacts used on the Criswell farm in the Valley View area north of Forney
- Early Ag Tools – agricultural tools on loan from Bill Crawley
