[GALLERY PRESENTATION] A Longhorn Legacy

November 16, 2019 @ 1:00 pm 4:00 pm

Included in Museum Admission.

Unimaginably, this iconic symbol of Texas was dangerously close to extinction in the mid-1920s. Only the efforts of six farsighted pioneer breeders kept these animals from fading out of ranching history. Anita Butler, the granddaughter of Milby Butler will share the story of her family’s commitment to returning the Longhorn to prominence and establishing the bloodlines of the famous Butler Texas Longhorns.  This amazing comeback is a little known but compelling chapter in the story of the American West. Items and photos from the Butler Longhorn Museum will document the history of this legendary cattle breed.
