Hico is an authentic western town still clinging to its character. Besides the Billy the Kid museum, (and statue) there are lots of little shops and places to eat to explore as well. There are also some historic points of interest scattered in the mix....More

The lady at the front was very knowledgeable about Billy the Kid. She was a delight and made our visit very interesting. 5 stars for her and interesting historic information. This small regional museum is more like a flea market with stuff scattered about in...More

Nice collection of War heroes from the town of Hico. Intersting to think that Billy the Kid wasn't shot by Pat Garrett.

So maybe Billy the Kid really died here. Maybe not. But the museum was informative and interesting. And free! It was a nice stop on the road to the hill country.

A lot of people know about Brushy Bill Roberts and like most, I thought his claims to being William Bonney to be little more than a load of road apples, horse hockey: phooey. While much of the items on display are conjecture and 2nd hand...More
