Quanah Parker Statue
In the courtyard outside the Texas Cowboy Hall of Fame stands a statue of Quanah Parker, last chief of the Comanche nation, sculpted by Jack Bryant. Across the street in the Stockyards is the Cowtown Coliseum, where, in 1909, Parker and 38 members of his tribe rode in full regalia as part of what is now the Fort Worth Stock Show and Rodeo. The statue used to be on display inside the Coliseum until it was moved to its current location next to a new Texas Historical Marker.
