It’s free!! Today is the Cowgirls of the West Museum & Emporium’s grand opening for the season at 205 W. 17th Street. They are open 11 am to 4 pm Monday through Friday and 11 am to 3 pm Saturday.

From their website:

We are an organization that is dedicated to preserving the heritage and the very important role that women played in the taming and settling of the wild, rough & tumble West.

The organization was founded in 1995 by women who not only wanted to keep the Western Spirit alive, but also to honor strong women of the past and present who have made amazing contributions to western culture and history.  The settling of the American West has often been romanticized in print and in the video media, where the lives of women have sometimes been depicted as easy, carefree, and glamorous: Nothing is further from the truth!!

Our  pioneering women worked very hard and right alongside men to make the American West the one that we know today.  The purpose of The Cowgirls of the West is to tell and preserve their remarkable and historical stories.
