Frontier Times Museum Texas Heroes Hall of Honor

The Museum's self-description:  "The Frontier Times Museum was formally opened to the public on May 20, 1933 at a groundbreaking ceremony held on January 1, 1933. Hough LeStourgeon was one of the men who turned stones from pastures into a landmark museum worth treasuring.  /  Today the museum attracts visitors to Bandera interested in the history of the region. Frontier times and customs hold a fascination that endures and the Frontier Times Museum imparts much of that spirit."
        The first honorees for Bandera's Frontier Times Museum Texas Heroes Hall of Honor are  J. Marvin Hunter, J. Frank Dobie, Maudeen Marks, Captain Joe Bowman, Ray Wharton, Cleo Hearn, Kevin FitzPatrick, "Impresario" Terry Boothe, and Dr. Raul Gaona, Sr.
Their website will likely soon reflect fuller information, but you can get a quick glance at some short biographies at the Bandera County Courier
