Cattle Raisers Museum
Established in 1979, the museum is dedicated to telling the
story of the cowboy and cattle ranching industry of the southwest.
Use has been made of talking mannequins, interactive exhibits,
authentic artefacts and theatre presentations to bring alive the
legends and lore of the Wild West, from Texas Rangers to rustlers.
The exhibitions cover four broad eras of cattle herding: the Open
Range trail from 1850 to 1890, the New Horizons trail from 1890 to
1940, the Vision trail from 1940 to 2000, and the Digital trail,
from 2000 to the present day. Several exhibits are named after
those who donated to them or played an important role in cattle
herding, such as the Ken Spain Saddle Collection, the Joe Russel
Spur Collection and the Leonard Stiles Branding Iron Collection,
the largest collection of branding irons in the world.
