Texas Historical Foundation

May 2, 2012

The Texas Historical Foundation has elected to support the Charles Goodnight Ranch House restoration by giving almost $225,000 for the project being coordinated by the Armstrong County Museum.

“We looked at several projects across the state, but in the end, the board thought that the Goodnight House restoration was especially worthwhile. For one thing, this project will likely add new information to Texas’s historical record and shed new light into the life of one of the state’s legendary cattlemen,” said an official for the Foundation.
