The Hubbard Museum

In 1989, R.D. and Joan Dale Hubbard were seeking a way to display their personal collection of artworks in Texas. For many years, Anne Stradling, originally of Eastern United States affluence had collected items relevant to the heritage of the American West. Anne and the Hubbards eventually came into contact with each other and made an agreement to bring Anne’s personal collection to Ruidoso Downs. In 1992, the doors to what was then known as the Museum of the Horse opened for the first time. Over time, the name of the museum was changed to the Hubbard Museum of the American West and operations were moved over to the City of Ruidoso Downs. Since its opening, the museum has been exploring the heritage of the American West with diverse audiences.
