Step back into the grandeur of 1880 in the historic Gallman-Kerr Building, which was the first masonry brick two-story commercial building constructed in Cotulla. The building was previously a dry goods and mercantile store and served as the offices for Cotulla State Bank, chartered in 1907.
Cattlemens of Cotulla, working along with the City of Cotulla, it’s Main Street Board, and the Texas Historical Commission have preserved and restored this community’s historic building. It has retained many historic features that include its stamped-tin ceilings and the bank’s walk-in vault.
Just doors down in the Cotulla Historic District is the legendary Ben’s Western Wear which houses the Texas Hat Museum. For over half a century, Ben’s Western Wear has outfitted everyone from Texas Ranchers to Texas Rangers with authentic western apparel.
Cattlemens of Cotulla sits on the corner of Front and Center. With a glance to the west at the top of the hill you will see the recently renovated LaSalle County Courthouse, which is a State Archeological Landmark, a Recorded Flistoria Landmark and is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
