The Lone Ranger exhibit is now open in the Spindletop Tower gallery of the Armstrong Texas Ranger Research Center. “Masked Man” fans won’t want to miss this exhibit featuring archival and library artifacts from collections never before exhibited. These includes posters, books, photographs, comic strips, cassette tapes, a computer game and ViewMaster slides (remember those?). The highlight of the exhibit is a Lone Ranger Frontier Town toy set. Designed by the creator of The Lone Ranger, Fran Striker, it is his personal copy of the toy town. The Armstrong Research Center’s hours are Monday-Friday 10 am- 4 pm.

    should I decide to donate some of my Lone Ranger collection,
    how would I go about it?

    They had a segment on American Pickers about a place that had more than the Lone Ranger items. The person taught the Lone Ranger about how to do his gun. Do you know where that place is located? [email protected] Thanks!
