Museum Of The West Texas Frontier


The Museum of the West Texas Frontier in Stamford operates under the supervision and administration of the City of Stamford. Located in the heart of the cowboy country of Texas, its supporters are vitally interested in the perpetuation of the image of the Old West and to focal point the cowboy.

Thanks to the original plan of the museum board, which called for commissioning outstanding Western artists, the museum’s permanent collection features paintings by Tom Ryan, Wayne Baize, and Bob Moline, as well as sculpture by William Moyers and Jim Hamilton, and a display of artifacts of bygone days.

A new addition expands upon the history of the town of Stamford including exhibits showcasing Ray Rector and Tommie Rector, United States Congressman Charles Stenholm, Elvis Presley, antique medical equipment and town doctors, veterans and military, police and fire departments, and Stamford’s many Texas State Championship winning football teams.
