Thursday April 6, 2017 to Sunday January 7, 2018
The George Bush Presidential Library and Museum is excited to welcome its newest exhibit, entitled: "The Legacy of Ranching: Preserving the Past, Embracing the Future." Through a partnership with the Department of Animal Sciences at Texas A&M University, this exhibit celebrates the historic ranches of Texas and their ability to adapt through changing natural and business environments.The commitment and innovation of the families who built these ranches have helped them to preserve their legacies.
From early Spanish Land grants to the present day descendants, the exhibit highlights these strong ranching legacies and examines how the livestock industry helped shape the state of Texas. Recordings of oral histories, an original video narrative, hands-on educational activities, and a historic chuck wagon centerpiece are all included in this impressive new exhibit. Don’t miss the opportunity to share the legacy of Texas ranches with a new generation and learn about the sheer fortitude of Texas ranching families. Financial support for this exhibit was provided by Capital Farm Credit, Houston Livestock Show & Rodeo, Texas A&M AgriLife Research & Extension, and the Texas A&M Department of Animal Science.
This exhibit will be on display from March 6, 2017, through January 7, 2018, in the Ansary Gallery of the George Bush Presidential Library and Museum.
