This small museum gives you a look at the life of an amazing woman, Miss Hallie Stillwell. Pioneer, teacher, rancher and member of the Cowgirl Hall of Fame.

“Read there books and you'll get a full amazing story”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 13, 2014

Hallie was an incredible woman who lived through many tough times. An amazingly strong woman who persevered where we'd all give in. Read her two books: "I'll Gather My Geese" and "My Goose is Cooked" for stories from her life. Sorry this amazing woman has passed on, but her stories remain.

“An Amazing Woman”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 17, 2014

Awesome! After visiting her museum, the house in which she lived, I know I can't ever complain about anything as she had hardships to endure. We have an easy life! And she started her adult life at age 15 traveling alone to be a teacher. Her book, "I'll Gather My Geese" is a must read!

“Fun Spot”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2013

Stopped in to visit while traveling around Big Bend area. Very personable man greeted us and showed us around then allowed us to wonder on our own. Nicely arranged.

Allowed us to drive through portions of Stillwell Ranch. Extra special.

A little research on Hallie Stillwell prior to visit is helpful toward your appreciation of the lady's life but not necessary. There are enough exhibits to give you an idea of what a strong woman she was. Read her autobiography - available at the store.
