for those who like the older guns......winchester, Sharps, colt, Volcanic, and many more.


many of the guns are original with some modern reproductions thrown in. A whole lot of history up close and behind glass. Plenty of big name guns from the era.....and many more i have never heard of.....from derringers to buffalo guns.

and much more including indian exhibits, uniforms of the era, documents, buildings, leather, etc.

the citations on the Medal of Honor recipients from TX would just freeze you in your tracks reading them....you cold not walk away until you read it all.....

we were there last night for a special dinner to support area scholarships and charities......or i should say hard working local tax-exempt entities......

only got to tour mostly the gun exhibits......we will be going back to try to make a day of it.

20 years ago, there was hardly anything on site except for old crumbling buildings and an old historic marker....it has really blossomed into something special.

they even have a rifled cannon (modern production repo) that as a team they go to competitions with.

I had been to the old fort about 20 years ago and there was not much to see.
Wow! this will require another road trip. looks like they have done a spectacular job. If memory serves me it is not too far from San Angelo.
I am going to make it a stop this fall as the temps go down. I love Texas history.
Thank you so very much for the link.

They didn't have all that the last time I was at Fort Chadbourne probably in the early 1990s. I've been past the sign several times in recent years, but never drove back in there.

Great stuff! Thanks!
