The National Ranching Heritage Center is an diamond in the rough... The preservation of history in this museum is phenomenal. Being able to walk through old houses and see and FEEL the history all around you takes you back in time. From the artful landscape to the detail of utensils used on tabletops one can tell much thought has been put into each aspect of this historic gem. Definitely a must see for those new to or visiting the area.
