New Acquisition! The latest addition to the museum collection is two pairs of custom-made boots originally owned by Texas Ranger Joaquin Jackson. Both pairs of boots were made by the L. M. Easterling Custom Boot Company of Fredericksburg, Texas. The pair with the Texas Ranger badge was made in 2006, and the pair with the "Walking J" cattle brand was made in 2001.
While Jackson retired from the Texas Rangers in 1993, these are the type of boots he would have worn throughout his career. Jackson served in the Rangers from 1966 to 1993, and worked at his private investigation firm after retirement, in addition to being an author and actor. He passed away in 2016 at his home in Alpine, Texas. These boots are an important addition to the collection and help tell the story of Texas Rangers today.
