"The Legacy of Ranching" exhibit opens at George Bush Presidential Library

COLLEGE STATION, Tex. (KBTX) - Ranching played a crucial part in the history of Texas and continues to shape the state today.

There's a new exhibit at the George Bush Presidential Library that celebrates the legacy of ranching.

There are opportunities to learn about the legendary King Ranch, the history of branding, and more.

"There's also hides of different animals that are here and they can feel them and they get to guess which one it is. There's interactive media as well, like a barbecue exhibit section there so they can learn about barbecue. There's so much not only for adults to learn, but for kids to get hands on and learn as well," explained David Anaya with the George Bush Presidential Library.

"The Legacy of Ranching" exhibit is going to be at the George Bush Presidential Library until January 7th of 2018.
