about the hall of fame
The Texas Cowboy Hall of Fame honors Texas men and women who have excelled in the sports of rodeo and cutting. The inductees include Ty Murray (7 time World Champion All Around Cowboy), Tuff Hedeman (4 time World Champion Bull Rider), Charmayne James (11 time World Champion Barrel Racer), and Don Gay (8 time World Champion Bull Rider), just to name a few. Each booth contains photographs and memorabilia; and many of the booths also have video, depicting the honorees’ careers in their respective events.
Also included in the Texas Cowboy Hall of Fame are the Sterquell Wagon Collection and the John Justin Trail of Fame. The Sterquell is billed as “the world’s largest lifestyle wagon collection” and features more than 60 antique wagons, carriages and sleighs. Included in the exhibit:
- A Sicilian cart dating to the 1750s, with dramatic painted scenes and intricate iron work
- A Welsh funeral hearse, complete with beveled glass windows, gold leaf paint, and plumes
The Texas Cowboy Hall of Fame is open seven days a week. It also features a Western Gift Shop, Olde Tyme Photo Parlor and unique party facility.
