Tri-State Old Time Cowboy Museum

See How Cowboys lived in Gordon, Nebraska

Cowboy memorabilia from the late 1800s through the present day is displayed at the Tri-State Old Time Cowboy Museum at the Gordon City Park at Fourth and Oak streets. An impressive collection of cattle brands burned into wood helps explain the area’s ranching history for those who know how to read that unique language of the range. Relics featured here include antique furniture, dental equipment, ranching tools and barbed wire.

The museum is open 1-5 p.m. daily, June 1-Sept. 15, and by appointment. (308) 282-0887.
