profession. The project highlights those individuals, living or dead, who are
recognized nationally as outstanding in their field. The impressive structure
encompasses 13,000 square feet of space for exhibits, a gift shop and a large
banquet room. The facility can accommodate groups of 300 for lecture-type
seating or more than 200 for catered dinners. With soaring ceilings,
state-of-the-art lighting and sound systems and a commercial kitchen, the Hall
of Fame provides unparalleled meeting space for local groups needing space for
banquets and other activities.

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.
