Come by and see our eclectic mix of memorabilia and visit our unique gift shop. Our exhibits use a wonderful array of old artifacts to educate and entertain the visitor about ranching in the late 19th and 20th century in this area. Delightfully mixed with relics of our town is a special exhibit about Will Carver, the member of the "Wild Bunch" gang that met his fate on the streets of Sonora. You'll leave with a new appreciation of the pioneers that developed this rugged area when the discovery of a deep water well drilling technique opened this parched prairie to sheep, cattle, and goats after the bustle of the West had passed it by.
