The Museum offers many wonders and is dedicated to celebrating the people of Cuero and their unique heritage.

Numerous permanent captivating collections include, Cuero made famous by its "Gobbler Pride"  and love of the hometown football team, "The History of Cuero Gobbler Football". When you walk through, you may just hear, "Go Mean Green" in the background and the crowd cheering. Another permanent collection upstairs features over 2,300 delightful reamers in every shape and design you can imagine lends way to juicing in a new light. The glamorous and glittery yet infamous "Turkey Trot Exhibit" will leave you in awe, now with a lush Turkish Palace.

 Upgrading the Gobbler Football Exhibit

A Letter From Cliff Weber:

Dear Gobbler Supporter,

In 2007, my father, Mike Weber, had a vision to create an exhibit at the Cuero Heritage Museum on The History of Cuero Gobbler Football. That vision turned into a reality with the creation of three exhibits that highlighted Gobbler Football 1911 to 1941, 1942 to 1972, and the Glory Years – 1973 to 1975.

Our goal for this year is to expand the exhibit to cover the years from 1976 to 2009, highlight all teams that won State Championships, condense all previous football exhibits and add a touch screen technology to highlight previous and additional Gobbler photos, stories and game clips.     

The reason for this letter is to solicit your financial support for creation of this massive undertaking. The Gobbler Football program is the pride of the City of Cuero. Visitors as well as former CHS athletes, students and their family members visit the museum annually and are in awe to see how our great football history has been preserved. Former players take great pride in finding their name or photo within the exhibit with the ability to show their children and grandchildren that they were a part of a winning tradition in their youth.

Estimates to create the next section of football history is approximately $20,000. All contributions as well as memorials will be recognized. Sponsorships are also available as follows:

Decade Panel Sponsorships2 sponsorships available at $500 each
