The Annual Chuck Wagon Meeting

The annual meeting was started right after the museum was established in 1971. It serves as the museum’s annual meeting. Members attend the western influenced meeting and enjoy a wonderful meal and entertainment. Originally, the event was based around a chuck wagon cuisine. The museum continues to bring that “Down Home” flair each year.

Legends & Legacies, Cowboy/Cowgirl Hall of Fame

Each June, the Heritage Museum presents Legends & Legacies-Cowboy/Cowgirl Hall of Fame. This is the museum’s main fundraiser for the year. Six Cowboy and Cowgirls are selected as honorees and are inducted into the museum’s hall of fame.  Nominations are selected and voted on in January by the museum’s nominating committee.

The event includes a dinner and raffle.

Christmas Tree Forest

Each year, participants decorate beautiful and individualized trees that are seen by thousands during the Christmas season. The museum provides the lights and tree while the participant provides the decorations and creativity. Many organizations use this opportunity to advertise a business, service club, or their talent. There are between 60-70 Christmas trees that are displayed throughout the museum. The display starts November 15th and lasts through Christmas.


Santa comes to the museum on the first Friday of December bringing his Elves with him. Families enjoy an evening of visiting with Santa, and participating in a Christmas themed event. The low cost event is partially sponsored by the Dora Roberts Foundation, HEB and Sonic.
