Biographical Sketch

Officially dedicated on July 4, 1976, the Ranching Heritage Center is comprised of a 12 acre outdoor exhibit of 31 historic structures, dating from the 1830's to about 1917, with the structures having been moved to the current site from locations throughout the state and authentically restored in order to depict the history of farming and ranching in the West Texas area. These buildings show the evolution of ranching, and many of the structures originate from famous ranches that played decisive roles in the development of modern ranching such as the 6666, the Matador, the XIT, and the King ranches.

Scope and Content

The materials pertain to the Ranching Heritage Center's development (previously known as the Ranch Headquarters). Included are financial materials, invitations, correspondence, various newsletters, guest books, and biographical sketches of the various ranch buildings and their previous owners. Also included are materials on the National Western Artists Sales that were held at the Ranching Heritage Center in the mid-1980s.

Two of the boxes contain the writings of Mamie Burns, wife of former Pitchfork Ranch manager D. Burns. Mr. Burns was once chairman of the Board of Overseers and a member of the Executive Committee at the Ranching Heritage Center. Mrs. Burns wrote about their tenure at the Pitchfork Ranch on whatever materials she had handy at the time, including napkins and miscellaneous paper scraps. Her writings were edited by the Ranching Heritage Center into a book called This I Can Leave You which was published by Texas A&M Press.
