A Flavor of the Old West - Bandera, Texas
by Carl Burnham
Cowboys later used this trail along with the Western Trail in the large cattle drives which took place. With its rich history, Bandera is known today as the Cowboy Capital of the World, with ranches all around. In the summer, you can tube or canoe down the Medina River. Be sure to stop in at the OST Restaurant for meals fit for a cowboy, with John Wayne and Western memorabilia lining the walls and leather saddles to sit on at the bar. There is the old courthouse in town, along with several antique shops and restaurants, including one in the old bank. Be sure to tour the Frontier Times Museum which stores a rich collection of Western and worldly artifacts. We looked at an ancient wooden throne used by royalty from Venice, Italy dating to the 15th century. There is a shrunken head of a Jibaro Indian girl from Ecuador. Many more fascinating historical finds can be seen from a visit, and a step back in time, to Bandera.
