This statue pays tribute to those courageous men who came up the Texas Trail and recognizes the role of the trail drives played in establishing the beef industry in the northern plains.

Boot Hill, Ogallala's Pioneer Cemetery, established in the 1870s, was restored by the Ogallala Jaycees in 1963 in cooperation with the Keith County Historical Society.

Although the bodies were removed to the "new" Ogallala cemetery in the early 1900s, three coffins and bodies were discovered during excavation work in 1978. The bodies were later reburied at the Ogallala Cemetery.
