Bandera Cowboy Champion Monument

Bandera County Courthouse: Bandera, Texas

Bandera County: Bandera, Texas

The unique feature of the Bandera courthouse is the Bandera Cowboy Champion Monument erected in 1982. The monument is made of bronze and native fieldstone designed by artist, Norma Jean Anderwald, a native Texan. It honors seven national and world champion cowboys whose roots are in Bandera County. There is a bas-relief plaque of a replica of the belt buckle awarded to the seven cowboy champions.
My wife and I visited Bandera in July 2012. Our most memorable moments were walking the sidewalks below the courthouse and visiting all the stores along the Main Street and having a barbeque lunch at Busbee’s.
