The Ellensburg Rodeo Hall of Fame has joined with the Clymer Museum and Western Art Association to make the Western Culture & Art Center (WCAC), 416 N. Pearl, a showcase for art, culture, and western history. ERHOF now leases the old Downtown Pharmacy space from the Clymer Museum. ERHOF stores its large and valuable collection in the WCAC’s spacious upstairs, where ERHOF also maintains an office headquarters. ERHOF exhibits continuously in the old pharmacy, with shows celebrating the founding of the rodeo, women in the Ellensburg Rodeo, the role of Indians, trick riders and clowns, ropers, All-Around Champions, specialty acts, the inducted Animals that reached national fame, and much more.


ERHOF has collected hundreds of photographs, posters, jewelry, prize buckles, programs, costumes, saddles, films, programs and many other historical artifacts from the Ellensburg Rodeo donated by local and national competitors, participants, volunteers, and their families.

The following pictures are only small sample of the items in Ellensburg Rodeo Hall of Fame’s large collection:
