    National Cowgirl Museum and Hall of Fame

The National Cowgirl Museum & Hall of fame was designed by David Schwarz of Washington, D.C., with Gideon Toal acting as the Architect of Record. The building is constructed out of light brown brick and glazed terra cotta. On the northeast corner of the building is an octagonal tower that serves as a corner element and the housing for the building's mechanical systems above the roof. Along the top portion of the building are panels that depict the history of the Cowgirl. They were designed and fabricated by Montage Imagers of Fort Worth. The majority of the scenes were taken from historic photographs in the museum's collection. In the center of the eastern facade is a mural, painted by Richard Haas, who also painted the Chisholm Trail Mural on the Jett Building in Downtown. Om front of the building is a small plaza with a fountain.
