Located at Fort Griffin State Historic Site, residents and visitors can experience longhorns similar to those that were in Texas more than a century ago. Herd managers will continue to raise the cattle from calves, in the image of the animals that are so important and integral to telling the real stories of our state's history. Much like the residents of this state, the longhorn is a true Texan with roots in many places, but forever changed and refined by its time in the Lone Star State.

Starting at the visitor center, heritage travelers can explore interpretive exhibits to get an understanding of the region and why the U.S. military built a fort in 1867 at this location.
