A brief history of the National Cowgirl Museum and Hall of Fame
Margaret Formby establishes the National Cowgirl Museum and Hall of Fame in 1975. According to Taste of Country, the mission of the National Cowgirl Museum and Hall of Fame is, “honor[ing] and celebrat[ing] women, past and present, whose lives exemplify the courage, resilience, and independence that helped shape the West, and foster[ing] an appreciation of the ideals and spirit of self-reliance they inspire.”
The 2021 class of inductees is the 45th group of women to receive recognition from the National Cowgirl Museum and Hall of Fame. Rightfully so, the executive director of the museum, Patricia Riley, is excited about this class of inductees. “We are honored to welcome this outstanding class of inductees and add their remarkable stories and accomplishments to the amazing group of honorees they are joining in the Museum’s Hall of Fame.”
