A Curious Currency

In the stagecoach days of Texas, one enterprising saloon owner decided to accept antlers, horns, rattlesnake rattles, and other animal artifacts as currency. The Buckhorn Hall of Horns soon grew into the largest collection of such specimens in the state. The saloon’s original collection lives on as the Buckhorn Museum, a beloved representation of Texan culture. Visit the adjacent Texas Ranger museum to view proud arrangements of rangers' possessions, and stop by the saloon—where Pancho Villa allegedly planned the Mexican Revolution and Teddy Roosevelt wooed his Rough Riders—for a prickly pear margarita at the original cherrywood bar.
