Preserving the real places and the real stories of Texas.

A Night on the Last Frontier


Get ready for an evening of longhorns, chuck wagons, buffalo, and great beef! Pull on your boots, shine up that belt buckle, and head to Buffalo Gap to spend A Night on the Last Frontier. On behalf of the Friends of the Texas Historical Commission, we invite you to join us Thursday, October 29, 2015, for a rip roarin’ good time at the Perini Ranch Steakhouse.

This celebration is a unique opportunity to support the mission of the Texas Historical Commission to protect and preserve the state’s historic and prehistoric resources. You will be treated to live music, a visit from the Official State of Texas Longhorn Herd, an auction, star gazin’ and story tellin’. All in the grove at the Perini Ranch Steakhouse, while supporting the THC’s youth education initiatives…what could be better?
