Enjoy a nice breakfast at hotel. First visit is to the Texas Ranger Hall of Fame and Museum, The Texas Ranger Hall of Fame was a regular stop for dignitaries visiting President Bush’s ranch in nearby Crawford. Heads of state and Federal officials were visibly impressed when introduced to “a real Texas Ranger.” They requested autographs and treasured Texas Ranger pins above far more expensive souvenirs of America. The “Ranger Ideal” is alive and well in the 21st century. Preserving Texas Ranger history, and honoring distinguished Rangers is what the Texas Ranger Hall of Fame and Museum is all about. Off then to the Homestead Craft Village. Their craft village and working homestead occupy about 18 acres. For a fairly in-depth tour, giving ourselves plenty of time to look around in each shop and visiting with their craftsmen. We can start at The Barn, a 200-year-old barn restored by our craftsmen that also showcases the work of their craftsmen. This will give you a glimpse of the type, variety and quality of their work. Then enjoy a (Pre-Paid) Dinner prior to returning to the hotel.
