Ranching Heritage of the Guadalupe River Valley
As the centerpiece of the Museum, The Ranching Heritage of the Guadalupe River Valley exhibit gives visitors a walk through time and legend. The story of cattle ranching in the Guadalupe Valley, its roots in cattle ranching before and after the Great Cattle drives of the late 1800s, and the enduring folklore of the Texas cowboy is brought to life in this exhibit. Rich local history, including the infamous Sutton Taylor War, pitted cattle rustling outlaws against frontier justice and introduced lawmen such as the legendary Texas Rangers. Highly selective curation of objects for authenticity puts you that much closer to history.
