For those who have been missing the artifacts and lore of cattle-raising need wait no longer. After almost seven months of renovation, The Cattle Raisers Museum has reopened, reports The Huntsville Item.
“Sometimes our life has been hard,” a spokesman told The Item. “You look can at the photos and sometimes it’s been dry and dusty. It kind of underscores what our people have endured over the past 200 years. So, whether you’re looking at cowboy heading or roping a cow, or a picture of the Swenson Ranch, or Quanah Parker’s headdress, there’s something here that everybody can connect to.”
Located on the second floor of the Fort Worth Museum of Science and History, the Ken Spain Saddle Collection, the Joe Russell Spur Collection, and the Leonard Stiles Branding Iron Collection are now available for public viewing. Don’t forget to stay for the Thundering Herd Multimedia Experience!
