Visitor Tips and News About Scary Giant Cowboy Statue
"Tex" The Cowboy Statue
Just spoke with the current owner, Elliot Crabtree -- his father bought it and moved it to Conlen 50-60 years ago. It had previously stood at the entrance to another restaurant that he thinks was called "Cattleman's" at the intersection in Dalhart, TX.[Joshua Acosta, 07/12/2013]
I believe the statue straddled the doorway of the former Cowboy Cafe building and was originally at 4614 US 54, Dalhart, TX. I have a 1958 souvenir tea cup from the place, and home movies my grandparents made.[Thomas Matlock, 09/10/2012]
Dalhart is down the road about 20 miles from the cowboy's current home in Conlen.
