Cattle Raisers Museum shows off renovation

Cattle RaisersĀ 

This western life and ranching buff viewed an electronically depicted summary of the Goodnight-Loving Trail at the renovated Cattle Raisers Museum on Wednesday evening in Fort Worth. The Goodnight-Loving Trail originated in North Texas (Fort Belknap near Newcastle), moved into New Mexico (Fort Sumner) and wound up in Denver and Cheyenne, Wyo., in the late 1860s. Trail Drives were an integral part of raising cattle and ranching in the Old West in the late 1800s. The more prominent cattle drives are simplistically explained at the Cattle Raisers Museum that’s within the Fort Worth Museum of Science and History. The museum has undergone a major, seven month renovation and has been reopened. Museum officials, including executive director Patricia Riley, conducted a reception on Thursday evening to commemorate the state-of-the-art museum’s renovation and reopening.
