Step into Texas’s rough-and-tumble past at the Brown County Museum of History, and enjoy a riveting evening celebrating the bicentennial of the legendary Texas Rangers. First, try out some 1820s-inspired cocktails and hors d’oeuvres. Non-alcoholic options will be available, of course. Afterwards, Bob Alexander, award-winning author and Texas Ranger historian, will bring to life the early days when the Rangers patrolled the Texas frontier. With tales of the Rangers in the Old West era before they transformed into the law enforcement agency of today, Bob will recount true tales of Brown County in the 1800s. As a major hub in the violence of the Fence-Cutting range wars, it took the Texas Rangers to restore law and order to the area.
All tickets are pre-sale only. Get yours HERE, or purchase them at the museum.
The museum exhibits over 150 years of Brown County history, from the Penateka Comanche and the earliest Texan settlers to the WWII-era Camp Bowie military collection, as well as modern soil and grass conservation from Colonel Burns Ranch. Kids love the children’s area and the miniature Birdsong Circus. After browsing the rich history of Brown County, guests will enjoy a guided tour of the old jail across the street and be transported back in time to see glimpses of what life was like as a Brown County sheriff… or as an inmate.
