The Butler Longhorn Museum, which celebrates Milby Butler’s effort to save the Texas longhorn from the verge of extinction and the history of Galveston County, plans to relocate from 563 W. Bay Area Blvd., Unit 155, Webster, to a new space in the fall.

The new location

The new site will be located at The Depot on Market, 3304 Market St., in Galveston’s Historic District.

Museum details

Not only does the historical museum recognize six pioneer breeders and current Butler breeders who helped save the iconic cattle from extinction, it also catalogs the cultural heritage of Galveston, Texas and Galveston County.

The Butler Longhorn Museum is home to unique artifacts, local art, history and science exhibits, as well as a gift shop.

What’s next?

The museum is asking for benefactors to help raise funds needed for the maintenance and expansion of the museum’s exhibits and educational center. To donate, contact 832-679-6571 or [email protected].

A Sept. 23 silent auction will be held at The Conservancy, located at 1315 21st St., Galveston, toward this end. Attendees will get the chance to win a Kenny Chesney-signed acoustic guitar.
