  • Fantastic place! The Richard's have made this historical site a living history not just a bunch of old buildings. Definitely worth the visit.
  • Worth the drive to see this unique slice of American and Texan history. Come for the rifles, then be amazed by the rest of the collections and the obvious care that was taken in showcasing them all.
  • What a great way to spend the day! Everything from the video history to the tour itself was fun, informational, and extremely interesting. Garland, Lana, and Ann really made it into a whole experience, not just a simple walk-through. I highly recommend visiting, you will not regret it.
  • As listed on the National Register of Historic Places. Very interesting and very friendly, knowledgeable staff. Worth the trip...watch out for rattlesnakes!
  • From the welcome to the history told by the personal guide Brett Fort Chadbourne Museum was a rewarding family outing.
