February 1, 2024 – July 31, 2024
From award-winning paintings to vintage bronco bull riding photos, this HLSR exhibit complements the rodeo season in February and the Texas History Month in March.

This exhibit represents the cowboy spirit across Houston’s main heritages and is a big part of Houston history! Rodeo culture brings nearly all Texans together through food, skills competitions, music, parades, fundraisers, the carnival, vendors/exhibitors, and family entertainment.

“This exhibit portrays decades of the legendary organization and makes people realize the journey of how the food on their plate arrived and how important it is to support education for today’s agricultural and livestock industries.” says Alison Bell, Executive Director of The Heritage Society.

Some of the artifacts include-

George Bush Presidential Library Foundation saddle holder

Black and Hispanic Cowboy Heritage

Taylor Swift, Dolly Parton, Cody Johnson, Alabama, plus more signed guitars showcase (#swifties)

Photography, paintings, collectibles, costumery, and memorabilia of all the competitions
