The Former Texas Rangers Foundation was organized to support the
mission of the Former Texas Rangers Association, a 113-year-old
organization consisting exclusively of Texas Rangers and their
descendents dedicated to preserving Texas Ranger history.
The Foundation organizers shared a strong desire to provide the
necessary support to this group of dedicated, retired Texas
Rangers and their families. Their vision and dedication with
the creation of the Former Texas Rangers Foundation now allows for
individuals and corporations to join the ranks of these Texas
Rangers by supporting Texas Ranger history with membership
through the Foundation. And now, with our variety of
memberships, everyone can join up with the Rangers and be a part
of preserving Texas Ranger history. I hope that you will
consider enlisting with us.
The current focus of the Former Texas Rangers Foundation is to
provide Texans and visitors to the Lone Star state the opportunity
to experience first-hand the history, the philosophy and the life
experiences of one of Texas’ oldest institutions –
the Texas Rangers – with the future
Texas Rangers Heritage Center.
An interactive complex of Texas Ranger history, the Center
will provide both the Foundation and Association with the
opportunity to host seminars and educational programs, house a
complete library of Ranger archives, host permanent and traveling
exhibits of Ranger artifacts and provide an important educational
experience with the seven interactive timeline exhibits that tell
the story of the Texas Rangers beginning in 1823 and ending with
today’s Texas Rangers. A trust testament to Texas Ranger
history, the Center will be the only comprehensive complex of its
kind accessible to visitors throughout the year.
I hope that you will take some time and learn about
the Former Texas Rangers Foundation, our rich history and our
efforts to preserve this history for future generations. As
a retired Texas Ranger, I would like to personally invite you to
pull up a chair, look through our site and stay a while.
Like the Texas Rangers, we’ll be here when you need us and now,
we need your help to join us by becoming a part of that special
breed known as the Texas Rangers.
Thank you for your interest and I look forward to your support.
B. Davis, President
Texas Ranger Retired
