The Texas Country Music Hall of
Fame Band with Shawnda Rains and Charlie Shearer
Tex Ritter Museum. . . was opened on the
upper floor of the Hawthorn-Clabaugh-Patterson House on October 18, 1992.
Memorabilia was received from Ritter's family in California, and after hours of
cleaning and cataloging the items by volunteers, the museum became a reality.
With the opening of the Texas Country Music Hall of Fame, the Museum was moved
to the new location in August, 2003.
