Our Exhibits feature a wide and wonderful array of historical artifacts to educate and entertain visitors about area ranching in the late 19th and early 20th century. Delightfully paired with heritage exhibits, you’ll find a special exhibit discussing Will Carver - a member of the infamous “Wild Bunch” gang that met his fate on the streets of Sonora. Visitors will leave with a new appreciation for the pioneers that developed this rugged area of Texas following the discovery of a deep water well.
