Until his death in 2005, V.T. "Cowboy" Williams was a local staple, the last real cowboy of his time, who would happily regale interested parties with colorful stories, like the time he met Jesse James in 1946. The Chappell Hill Historical Society is once again hosting an exhibit on Williams, and this year it will be accompanied by "Vaquero: Genesis of the Texas Cowboy," an exhibit from the Wittliff Collections at Texas State University featuring the photos of Bill Wittliff, who visited a North Mexico ranch and documented the work of the Mexican cowboys or “vaqueros.” Both exhibits run through July 23, and on July 4, there will be a cowboy roundup featuring live music, a chuck wagon, and petting zoo.
