  • Awesome place to go. Spent a couple of hours and enjoyed the whole thing. Wish they had a self guided tour book. Lots of rodeo history and an amazing number of old carriages and a few other things from the early 20th century. Very interesting. If you have any I treat in the history of the area you have to go.
