Out of the Vault: King Ranch Branding Iron

Welcome again to “Out of the Vault.” This is our blog series where we take you behind-the-scenes to show off our newest acquisitions and why we think they are an important addition to the Museum’s mission to tell you the diverse stories of the West.

Finding a classic branding iron from King Ranch is very “on brand” (lol!) for Michael Grauer, McCasland Chair of Cowboy Culture / Curator of Cowboy Collections & Western Art.

The Western Heritage Fund helps make acquisitions like this possible. The West is full of different cultures, peoples and stories, and you can help us share those stories.
