The Choctaw County Historical Society obtained control of the Frisco Depot in 1978 and began its restoration to form the Frisco Depot Museum. Restoration began in the Harvey House Restaurant and progressed though out both floors of the old depot. Items of local and county-wide historical interest (artifacts, documents and pictures) are currently on display along with a miniature railroad, a miniature five-ring circus and a moonshine still.

War Savings Stamp (WSS) Building Current projects include the restoration of the War Savings Stamp (WSS) building. In 1918, this building was located in the intersection of Broadway and Jackson Streets and was used for the promotion and sale of War Saving Stamps and War Bonds to help fund World War I.

Model Railroad Railroading is preserved in displays of Frisco memorabilia and numerous artifacts of railroad construction and maintenance. Photos of trains, crews, wrecks, etc., abound.

The Harvey House Restaurant was fully restored and operated as a restaurant for many years. Two baggage rooms were converted into dining areas and the whole area is leased as a full service restaurant.

Harvey Girl quarters are preserved on the second floor. These consist of three bedrooms and a bath as well as a matron's suite.

The Choctaw County Historical Society also owns and operates the 48 slot Frisco Depot RV Park adjacent to the Depot and the Frisco Depot Park in front of the Depot.
