The Story of the Great Cattle Drives and the American Cowboy

As a heritage museum, the Chisholm Trail Heritage Museum connects us to the everyday lives of our pioneer ancestors, and brings this era in American history vividly to life through interpretive exhibits, research, and educational programs.

In early 2000, The Chisholm Trail Heritage Museum was established to preserve the ranching and agricultural heritage of DeWitt County and surrounding areas in South Texas, with its roots in the great cattle drives of the late 19th century, when the cowboy became an American icon, and the Longhorn steer a legend.

Gift Shop

Our Mission Statement

Our mission is to preserve the ranching and Western heritage of South Central Texas through interpretative exhibits, research, and educational programs.
