Experience John Wayne at the Ft. Worth Stockyards

To have beheld John Wayne, in person, as the persona or the man behind it, was truly an experience. The larger-than-life American icon of film and television was a beloved household name. Men wanted to be the Duke, children looked up to him. He had a robust love for America and all of its people regardless of color or creed. 

The John Wayne: An American Experience exhibit at the Ft. Worth Stockyards implores all of its visitors to immerse themselves in the life and times of one of America’s most beloved entertainers.
