Cattle Raisers Museum
About this Partner
The Cattle Raisers Association of Texas is the oldest and largest organization of its kind in the U.S., and the museum partnered with us to provide access to thousands of photographs that document the importance and significance of Texas and the Southwest's ranching heritage. The images include portraits of leading Texas ranches and ranchers. They contribute to several different collections; Fort Bend Museum Collection, From Plowshares to Diplomas: Digitizing Early Denton History, and the Where the West Begins: Capturing Fort Worth's Historic Treasures collection.
The Museum was opened in 1980 to build public awareness and appreciation for ranching heritage. They relocated in 2009 to the Fort Worth Museum of Science and History. They maintain a 10,000 square foot exhibition dedicated to preserving and celebrating the history of the cattle industry.
