Western Travel - Pioneer Days at the Chisholm Trail Museum (Part Five) - Cleburne, Texas - #TravelTuesday

Welcome to my weekly column #TravelTuesday featuring places I've discovered during my research trips or just wandering around in historical areas. I hope you enjoy my discoveries.

Today we continue our review of the 14th Annual Pioneer Days at the Chisholm Trail Museum in Cleburne, Texas.

Today we're going to check out some of the Native American displays around the museum grounds starting with the tipis that withstood the strong winds blowing during my visit. The slightly tilted design of the tipi helps protect it from being knocked over by those winds.

Here's another tipi (painted). It's more protected from the elements by the surrounding trees.

The Big Bear Native American Museum (bigbearmuseum.com) sits on the far south side of the museum grounds and has limited hours. Unfortunately during my visit it was closed, but there was plenty to see around it including a nice statue of a buffalo.
