In 1975, in the basement of the Library in Herford, Texas a display was assembled documenting the American Cowgirl. The idea was not to preserve this history, but to share it.
Those items laid the groundwork for the 33,000 square foot building that is now The National Cowgirl Museum. The imposing Art Deco designed building  by Mehl Lawson opened it's doors in Ft. Worth, Texas's Culture District in 2003. The senior program (Silver Frogs) at TCU University had a docent tour of the museum yesterday and Tom and I both attended.
An imposing sculpture by Mehl Lawson titled "Desert Princess" greeted us at the front door.
The attention to detail was amazing everywhere you looked...notice the door handles. I should have cropped it...but there I am!
For the next few days, I will share with you the displays that impressed me. So stay with me!


  1. What a great building, I like all those details. So they call the oldies overthere frogs? Because of jumping or chatting? :)

    1. Oh you are too funny Marianne.Despite the fact that Tom and I can still jump and certainly chat...The reason is the mascot of TCU is a Horned Toad...which is in the frog family...hence forth they are called he Frogs, and as much as I hate to admit it we are silver.

  2. A wonderful idea to have such a museum! I look forward to more.

  3. I know quite a few people who would enjoy such a museum
