National Border Patrol Museum

2018 West, Road Trip, Texas

At the suggestion of Beth and Paul, from their house we took I-10 to TX-375/Woodrow Bean Transmountain Highway and stopped for a visit at the National Border Patrol Museum in El Paso, Texas. It’s a non-profit museum founded by retired border patrol agents that does a great job of telling the history of the Border Patrol from it’s beginning in 1924 when the first agents received a badge and a revolver and recruits provided their own horse and saddle to the high tech equipment utilized today to protect our borders.
