- Stephen F. Austin, one of the founding fathers of Texas, couldn't imagine not protecting the 300 families he brought to help him settle Texas. So, in hiring 10 men to roam the range, he created the first law enforcement agency in the country, the Texas Rangers.
The museum honors the Rangers with exhibits featuring old photographs, badges, weapons, saddles and more from many men who have become legendary in this state. Also honored in the exhibits are the trail drivers and pioneers who fueled Texas' growing cattle industry and helped build the state into what it is today.
