Construction Complete For Fort Hoods National Mounted Warrior Museum
The Mounted Warrior Museum completed phase one of its construction, as seen in the background of the Fort Hood welcome sign on Dec. 28, 2021.
Officials with the National Mounted Warfare Foundation have announced that the first phase of construction for the National Mounted Warrior Museum at Fort Hood has been completed.
A soft opening for the new 28,700-square-foot museum is planned in late spring 2022 and grand opening in summer 2023 after interior displays are in place, foundation officials announced in a holiday message this week.
2021 was a landmark year for your Foundation we completed construction of Phase I of the National Mounted Warrior Museum, according to emailed message. We will begin conducting special events in the Museum in March 2022. Please get in touch with us if you are interested in holding an event or would like to tour the building.
Bob Crouch, the vice president of the foundation, said officials are still continuing fundraising for the other phases of the museum and will offer commemorative bricks, which can be ordered through the website at nmwfoundation.org.
In 2020, the $38 million project broke ground at Fort Hood after being in planning for 10 years.
The new museum is expected to grow in size in subsequent phases, officials said. It is being built outside Fort Hoods security fence, meaning visitors will not have go through a Fort Hood gate to get to it.
Big Bend Trading Company
Big Bend Trading Company, the museums gift shop, sells books related to the Big Bend and the museums collections. It also carries a variety of clothing, gifts and crafts for children and adults including Gorky Pottery, Charley Harper Handcrafted Birds, and Big Bend Collection Candles.
Gorky Pottery: Gorky González founded Alfarería Tradicional, the first pottery workshop in Guanajito, in order to reproduce and preserve the traditional majolica pottery technique of the region. All Gorky Pottery is food safe according to FDA standards and regulations. The Museum of the Big Bend is the exclusive retail outlet of Gorky Pottery in the Big Bend.
Charley Harper Handcrafted Birds: Charley Harper born on a farm in West Virginia, studied art at the Art Academy of Cincinnati, where he later made his home. For more than 60 years, without computers, Mr. Harper captured color, shape and movement. He uniquely simplified intricate and complex lines through his painted art. Designed by Gold Leaf Design Group and approved by the Harper Estate, each of these birds is a representation of Mr. Harpers minimal realism.
Big Bend Collection Candles: Created exclusively for the Museum of the Big Bend, these artisanal soy candles were inspired by the desire to bring natures calm, serene fragrances of the Big Bend into all environments. Each candle is carefully crafted from start to finish in the USA, using only the finest, locally sourced materials to ensure the highest quality.
