National Cowgirl Museum and Hall of Fame
The National Cowgirl Museum and Hall of Fame is a museum and association which honors women of the American West who have displayed courage or spirit and who have distinguished themselves while exemplifying the pioneer spirit. The facility is located in the Cultural District of Fort Worth, Texas, USA, adjacent to the Fort Worth Museum of Science and History.
The museum was begun in the small basement of the library in Hereford, the seat of Deaf Smith County in West Texas by Margaret Clark Formby (1929–2003), wife of the radio broadcaster Clint Formby. Formby sought for a larger city to take over the exhibits, and Fort Worth won the competition. Formby's husband's uncle was the Texas politician Marshall Formby, a state senator, highway commissioner, and gubernatorial candidate.
