Plans for a railroad museum next to the Cleburne intermodal station are in the works. 901 Hillsboro Street.

Chisholm Trail Outdoor Museum- When entering Cleburne from the west on State Highway 67 you witness the past brought back to life. The Chisholm Trail Outdoor Museum is on the northwest bank of Lake Pat Cleburne and is fast becoming the premier tourist attraction in this area. The museum actually sits where the famous Chisholm Trail went through this area taking millions of cattle to the cattle shipping terminals to the north. As you enter the outdoor museum you are greeted by Indian tepees and the largest life size silhouette cattle drive in the world. Also on the grounds is the oldest log Courthouse in Texas. This historic old building, built in 1854, has been restored and is back in the place of its origin at Wardville, the first county seat of Johnson County. It is flanked by an old windmill to the south, a newly completed replica of a circa 1870’s jail and a restored stagecoach under the portico of the new stagecoach welcome center to the north. (Stage used in several John Wayne movies) The Robinson and Roe stone pavilion is available for family or corporate outings. Also on the museum grounds is the restored old Wardville Cemetery where William and Permilla O'Neal were buried in the mid 1800's, a restored mule barn used to house mules for use by the Johnson Stage Lines that ran from Cleburne to Fort Worth in the mid 1800’s and a replica of a blacksmith shop of that era .  The most visible attraction from the highway is the 80 foot stone wall with the words WELCOME TO CLEBURNE * ON THE CHISHOLM TRAIL. It features nine life size silhouettes of Chisholm Trail riders and Longhorn steers. Future attractions at the site will include a Trading Post, School and Church. This is a project of Johnson County Heritage Foundation. Call 817-648-1486 for more information. www.jchfi.org

Cleburne’s Historic Outdoor Mural
- Located between Caddo Street and Main Street one block south of the Johnson County Court House, this 216 ft. long mural was designed and hand painted over a three year period by well known local artist Stylle Reed. The mural depicts the history of Cleburne and the Cross Timbers region of Texas from when the Spanish explorer Luis De Moscoso first scouted this area in 1542 through the fledgling beginnings of Johnson County in 1854, to the exciting and adventurous days of the Chisholm Trail, the expansion of the Santa Fe Railroad into Cleburne and its influence on city, right into the 20th century when the Cleburne Motor Company produced the Chaparral, one of the first automobiles manufactured in Texas and “Slats” Rogers built the first airplane in Texas here in Cleburne. A brochure is available at the chamber giving information on the different scenes shown throughout the mural.
