Dr. Marjorie Roper
Dr. Marjorie Ferrell Roper's life has been an amazing journey. In seventy years of practicing medicine she has treated patients who were veterans of the Civil War through children of the 21st Century. After graduating in 1943 from the University of Texas Medical Branch-Galveston she interned at Parkland Hospital in Dallas. Following her residency at Children's Medical Center in Dallas she was a physician in Longview, Austin and Biloxi. In 1947 she returned to her hometown and began her practice for the next sixty years in the back of her father's drugstore. The drugstore had been owned by O.L. Ferrell and wife, Hattie, since 1920. After her retirement in 2007 from full time medicine she began to make plans to open a museum in the 100 year old drugstore and clinic. The Bulllard History Museum opened November 3, 2012 on Bullard's Red White and Blue Day. The museum displays local memorabilia and collections of Dr. Roper. Featured in the museum are the old pharmacy, doctor's office and  soda fountain. Other sections included are school, military, church, business, dolls, farm and music. But the real treasure of the museum is visiting with Dr. Roper who has lived over 90 years of Bullard's 130 year history.

Message from Dr. Roper

     I was born in Bullard on June 7, 1921 and have been very fortunate to claim it as my home even when away in school and work for 91 years.   My aim is to preserve our wonderful heritage so this museum is my dream for the town and its surrounding communities.
