Texans are rightly proud of the famous law enforcement group. Wacoans can be proud that the story of the group’s history is shared in our backyard.

The Texas Ranger Hall of Fame and Museum was designated by the state as the official historical center of the Texas Rangers law enforcement agency. It consists of the Homer Garrison Jr. museum gallery, the interactive Texas Ranger Hall of Fame, the Texas Ranger Research Center and the headquarters of Texas Rangers Company F.

The Homer Garrison Jr. Gallery has more than 14,000 artifacts dating back to the founding of the Texas Rangers.

Researchers use the the center to research ancestors, write books or produce movies and television shows. The collections hold more than 300,000 items including the personal and case files of Texas Rangers.

The museum was founded in 1964. The facility includes Knox Hall, which hosts banquets, weddings, conferences and other gatherings. The hall recently underwent some upgrades.
