West Texas Room

In 1989, the West Texas Room became the G.B. Dealey library and is open to the public by appointment only. Large hand-hewn wooden beams span the ceiling, recalling the elegance of the Spanish architectural heritage of the region. The tiled floor illustrates the cactus motif while the adobe walls have relief sculptures of cattle brands used in Texas. Before the niche at the far end of the room stands a carved statue of a cowboy. Dorothy Austin of Dallas is the sculptor. There are horse tails hanging from the top of each window. The tile panels on the adobe walls depict such West Texas types as the sheriff, horse wrangler, Comanche warrior, shepherd, pioneer woman, and a Mexican guitarist.
