The Tall Texan

Patricia Montgomery

Cave Spring, United States

Artist's Description

Tex Randall was built in 1959 when Harry Wheeler built the tall Texan to promote his Western curio shop. Tex Randall is 47 feet tall and weighs seven tons.

After many years, Tex began to deteriorate and then a tractor trailer crashed into his left boot. Local businesses started a “Save the Cowboy” campaign and restoration work was completed in 1989.

As of 2010, he was still standing but once again deteriorating. A group is trying to raise perservation funds once again.
