Wild West Heritage Foundation

Welcome to the Wild West Heritage Foundation!

The Wild West Heritage Foundation was created to support projects that preserve the historical importance of livestock in the Wild West. In the 19th century, livestock was the core of the economy in Dodge City, Kansas, dramatized by countless books and movies relating to cattle drives and heroic ranchers and farmers trying to survive against the odds.

Our broad definition of  livestock extends to herd animals like buffalo that once roamed the plains in the millions. By offering the public living exhibits of  the livestock common in our history, we help to showcase the resources of our past so that new generations can appreciate what life was really like in the Wild West.
