We learned about the Charles and Mary Ann Goodnight Ranch State Historic Site when we saw it on one of the episodes of “The Texas Bucket List”. We then planned our visit when we were in the area. The site’s staff was very friendly, helpful and very knowledgeable about the history of the place. Highly recommended place to visit and place on your “bucket list”.

The Center employees were very welcoming and knowledgeable! There were three short films which gave nice historical background on the Goodnights. We loved the stature of Molly feeding the baby bison. How grateful we are for the vision that Charles and Molly had to preserve the bison herd! This is such an important part of Texas history. My husband is a history buff and he especially enjoyed seeing the home, which has been so thoughtfully restored. This Center has a big heart!

We just took the tour (about 45 minutes) and our guide was a well-informed local historian. It was very enjoyable and I would highly recommend.

Stopped on our way out of Amarillo and walked the grounds, but did not do the house tour. Really enjoyed the information in the museum, including the videos, and the tour guide. She was very informative and friendly. Would have like to have talked a bit more about the conservation of the bison and research Mr. Goodnight did during his lifetime with the tour guide.
