On Saturday, June 28, Vince King, a multi-award winning “Elvis Tribute Artist (ETA),” returns to the Butler Longhorn Museum stage as the “The King” of rock-n-roll.

BLM on display at Moody Mansion, Chisholm Trail Heritage Museum

The Butler Longhorn Museum recently collaborated with the Bryan Museum, 1867 Settlement District, Galveston Historical Foundation, Galveston Railroad Museum, and the Rosenberg Library to augment the “Texana” exhibit currently on display at the Moody Mansion Mary’s Gallery. The exhibit, which runs through November 15, highlights Galveston County’s role in Texas history and “what it means to be a Texan.”

In addition to the local exhibit, BLM is collaborating on an exhibit set to debut in the Fall at the Chisholm Trail Heritage Center located in Duncan, Oklahoma. The exhibit will showcase artifacts and recount stories of Milby Butler and his ranch hands as they drove the longhorns along the famed Chisholm Trail.

BLM Website Front PageWebsite Redesign

Now that the Butler Longhorn Museum has regained its footing and reopened after its battle with Hurricane Harvey, Museum Director Monica Hughes recently launched the redevelopment of the Museum’s website (www.butlerlonghornmuseum.com). The new site includes information on the updated exhibits, a calendar of upcoming events, information on featured artists, and contact information for private event inquiries.

The Butler Longhorn Museum & Education Center highlights the Butler cattle bloodline, while exhibiting the history of the Longhorn Breed. The Museum documents the rich multicultural heritage of the region through farming and ranch history. Western history, art, and science are demonstrated and preserved throughout the Museum and Educational Center with program focused on agriculture, Gulf Coast Heritage, and Texas history.
