At The Williamson Museum, history is painted right onto the walls. Seven murals cover spaces in the museum, with each one depicting a historical scene from the 1930s and 1940s. Turn-of-the-century photographs take visitors back even farther, profiling Williamson County during its earlier days. Many of the other exhibits cater to children's curiosities with interactive features, like Willie's Kids Corral. There, a chuck wagon sends kids back to the days of the cowboys and even lets them ring a dinner bell, which was used before cowboys could send text messages to say the beans were ready.
The Williamson Museum operates as a nonprofit organization, with proceeds going toward funding various forms of educational outreach. The staff also runs history-themed camps for kids and leads tours of the historic Williamson County Courthouse, among a variety of programs.

Shoppers can get in on the activities, taking classes to learn how to create sweaters, scarves, and felt bags. They can also peruse the ample supplies of yarn for specific textures and colors for their projects.

Thousands upon thousands of wild mustangs roam the public lands in America's West, living independent of humans and their delicious salt licks. However, when herds become overpopulated or threatened, the Bureau of Land Management steps in to save these horses. The untamed mustangs require extensive training and care before they can ride trails. That's where The Supreme Extreme Mustang Makeover's trainers come in. Each year, they adopt these wild horses, train them for only 120 days, and enter them into competitions across the country.
At each Supreme Extreme Mustang Makeover event, judges award hundreds of thousands of dollars to the best trainers and their horses as they ride their mustangs and perform spectacular feats. However, despite the money and the crowd's applause, the primary goal of these events remains mustang preservation; since its founding in 2007, The Supreme Extreme Mustang Makeover has facilitated the adoption of more than 3,300 American mustangs.
