Kingsville: John E. Conner Museum

The rugged and challenging landscape of South Texas with its diverse wildlife may have seemed an unlikely place for cattle ranching in the 1700s. But Spanish settlers brought livestock into the area and grew the cattle industry which has thrived ever since.  The John E. Conner Museum presents the natural and cultural history of South Texas through animal landscape exhibits, along with stories of the cattle trade and the Mexican vaquero, forerunner of the American cowboy.
