101 Studios, the studio responsible for 1883 and Yellowstone, curated items for the exhibition, including an authentic wagon, a camp set-up and wardrobe worn by ​Tim McGraw, Faith Hill, Sam Elliott and LaMonica Garrett, along with behind-the-scenes photography.

The exhibition also includes beaded props from National Cowgirl Museum Hall of Fame Honoree Cathy A. Smith, an artist dedicated to preserving the history of the 19th-century cowboy and cowgirl and the Plains Indians. Smith’s original craftwork is featured as part of the costuming for the Lakota, Crow, and Comanche tribes in 1883. Her work has been featured in over 35 Western films, including Dances with Wolves, Comanche Moon and Geronimo.

Made in Fort Worth

Filming for 1883 took place in Fort Worth and surrounding areas from July to October of 2021. The show employed hundreds of local production crew and extras, used local businesses and heavily featured locations like the Fort Worth Stockyards.

1883 is written and directed by Fort Worth native Taylor Sheridan. Sheridan is also known for the popular TV series Yellowstone, Sicario, Hell or Highwater, Wind River and more.

We are proud to partner with the National Cowgirl Museum & Hall of Fame and 101 Studios on this exhibition,” said Bob Jameson, president and CEO of Visit Fort Worth, which includes the Fort Worth Film Commission. “Film and television production not only creates jobs locally, but it also provides an opportunity to drive tourism to our city through location tours and exhibitions like this one.
