The George Ranch Historical Park in Richmond, Texas, interprets the state's farming and ranching heritage, as experienced by four generations of a pioneer Texas family. Located a short drive from Houston, this 480-acre outdoor museum offers a unique historical experience to a wide variety of visitors, ranging from schoolchildren to international tourists. The April 2003 meetings of the National Council on Public History featured a roundtable session on the George Ranch as part of an ongoing experiment in alternative forms of museum and exhibit review.
