Hopalong Cassidy Museum


Hopalong Cassidy (William Boyd) was the first big western TV star on American television.  As he rose to fame – he became known for endorsing just about anything someone paid him to promote.  His name or picture was plastered of hundreds if not thousands of advertisements and products over the years.

One museum in Cambridge, Ohio has collected many of those items and serves as a tribute to the Ohio native.

We chatted with Laura Bates who runs the collection and organizes a festival each year to pay tribute to Hopalong Cassidy.
