This place was just some cheap place that was clearly paid for by tax dollars, do not waste time here!!

Response from Sue J, Public Relations Manager at National Ranching Heritage Center

We've been closed for seven months as a result of the pandemic, so we are wondering when you came to visit. Although we are on Texas Tech University land, nothing above the dirt was paid for by tax money. We have no university or state funding for anything that has been built, moved or reconstructed here. There is no admission fee, and we have the largest outdoor historic museum west of Williamsburg.

I send a couple of hours touring the facilities found the to be very interesting to see how people might have lived in late 19th to early 20th century.

You can walk through more than 100 years of Texas history in an afternoon. Houses, school houses, barns, bunkhouses and even a train await you. It's a great place to get some exercise,sun and an education. There is no charge, but a donation will help keep the operation going.

The dancing center is definitely worth the visit. Learning and seeing firsthand about the plains. I took my cousins from Virginia here and we spent several hours looking at all the houses and watching the videos. Beautiful saddles were on display while we were there. The gift shop was also a hit as everyone was able to find something to take home !…
