Best Reason to Say Yee-Haw: Pioneer Town's Cowboy Museum

Best Reason to Say Yee-Haw: Pioneer Town's Cowboy Museum

A giant, stuffed jackalope and tales of a UFO body are reasons enough to make a trek to Wimberley's Cowboy Museum, planted smackdab in the middle of the reconstructed Pioneer Town. The museum's owner, Jack Glover, has been delighting and raising the eyebrows of visitors for decades. The Blanco River flows through the 89-year-old’s veins, with a hint of nicotine and Cherokee blood, the latter being one of the reasons why his museum, which was formerly housed in San Antonio near the Alamo, made its stop in the Texas Hill Country.
