The Cowgirl Hall of Fame is a spectacular celebration of women and their accomplishments, sure to appeal to AHP’s mostly female membership. The Hall of Fame members include such honorees as Sherry Cervi, Mary Burger, Reba McEntire, Dr. Eleanor Green, Temple Grandin, Sunny Hale, and Sandra Day O’Connor. Exhibits include western art, photography, and apparel. There are also interactive exhibits that allow visitors to “ride” a bronc and listen through the history of western music. Bonus: a gift shop that is enticing in its own right.
Attendees may opt to stay in the Cowgirl Hall of Fame area can enjoy the Fort Worth Cultural District, home to five museums featuring western and modern art as well as a child-friendly museum of science and history. The interactive Fort Worth Water Gardens are also nearby. The bus will return to pick up attendees at 3:15 p.m. https://www.fortworth.com/about/neighborhoods-districts/cultural-district/
