Begun in the 1800s and still active to this day, the Texas Rangers hold a mystique and lore of their own in Texas and beyond. From investigating murder and corruption, acting in riot control, protecting government officials, and tracking down fugitives, their history is thrilling and storied. Learn more about the faces in the group that have paved the way in Texas law enforcement by making a stop at the Texas Rangers Heritage Center, located in the historic town of Fredericksburg.
The Texas Rangers Heritage Center is a new 12-acre development that is still being added to, so check their website for updated information on which exhibits have been completed. The Center is dedicated to telling the stories and passing on the values and vision of the Texas Rangers through various exhibits. Gather around the “campfire” to hear legends of the Rangers told. While it’s meant to have the casual feel of a backcountry gathering, storytelling will actually be held in a 150-seat outdoor amphitheater. The Texas Rangers have been a part of many historic Texas events, such as stopping the assassination of President William Howard Taft and taking part in cases against criminals such as gunfighter John Wesley Hardin, bank robber Sam Bass, and outlaws Bonnie and Clyde. Separate Wild West mythology from factual heroics as you learn more about the Texas Rangers at the Texas Rangers Heritage Center in Fredericksburg.
The Texas Rangers Heritage Center’s main building will house exhibits on the history, heritage, and culture of the Texas Rangers and will be the site of the LoneStar Ranger Academy, a youth education program dedicated to passing on the Ranger’s five character traits of courage, determination, dedication, respect, and integrity.
