Denver, Colo. â€“ Graebel Companies, Inc., the largest privately owned and operated relocation company in the United States, recently announced that their local service center, Graebel Los Angeles Movers, Inc. has been selected as the exclusive moving company to relocate the Roy Rogers-Dale Evans Museum to Branson, MO.
Graebel Los Angeles Movers will be moving 9 truckloads of memorabilia and household goods from Victorville, CA, including the entire Roy Rogers and Dale Evans collection. This impressive collection consists of beloved animals â€œTriggerâ€, â€œButtermilkâ€ and â€œBulletâ€, custom saddles, â€œNellyBelleâ€ the jeep, Royâ€™s parade Cadillac, guitars, albums, pianos, costumes, photographs, magazines, autographed paraphernalia and many other items. Additionally, Graebel will provide moving services for several members of the Roy Rogers and Dale Evans family.
The new 26,000 square foot museum, located at 3950 Green Mountain Dr., Branson, MO, keeps the spirit of the American West alive. Welcoming visitors at the entrance to the museum is the unforgettable â€œTriggerâ€, a tribute to the famous couple who devoted many years to entertaining millions of people. Exhibited inside are memories and treasures of the pair and all they love – a permanent reminder of a simpler and more innocent time.
Run by Roy â€œDustyâ€ Rogers Jr., the new museum will occupy four acres and will include a 300-seat theater where Dusty Rogers’ band, the High Riders, will perform his parents’ hit songs with other singing members of the Rogers family.
The grand opening of this celebrated museum is tentatively scheduled for May 24, 2003.
