Old Cowtown Museum

Old Cowtown Museum

A thriving community all its own, Cowtown gives visitors a true taste of the myths, truths, and romance of the “Old West” and America’s frontier.

As a nationally recognized and accredited living history site, Cowtown offers a unique experience every time you visit. From buffalo hunters, traders, and cowboys to blacksmiths, carpenters and farmers, you’ll meet costumed staff who portray life on the frontier as it really was.

Experience the 1880’s-era DeVore Farm or drop by the land office to stake your claim. You can even try your hand at some of the activities common to life on the prairies, or enjoy one of our special educational and entertainment events and performances. See our calendar for more information.

We hope you enjoy our work.
