In 2004 the first cowboys and cowgirls were inducted into the Texas Rodeo Hall of Fame, which was founded to preserve West of the Pecos Rodeo history by honoring the people who have made it historical. Inductees are comprised of individuals who have competed in the West of the Pecos Rodeo. Every year the Texas Rodeo Hall of Fame induction is held in June during West of the Pecos Rodeo week.
As of 2016 almost 50 inductees have been honored, and their memorabilia is on display in the old T&P depot where the hall of fame is housed. Artifacts at the Texas Rodeo Hall of Fame are available for public viewing Tuesday through Saturday, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.
