Boots & Gloves Museum
This new interactive museum now in the planning stages will focus on the rich history of leather-goods manufacture in Nocona. Visitors will tour the two different sections of the museum, which will feature Nokona Ball Gloves and the Montague Boot Company.
Ball Glove Tour:
The history of Nokona Ball Gloves will come alive with different stations showing the various steps involved with the making of a ball glove: the types of leather used, the clicker, sewing machine, and hot finger stations through the lacing table and the final fit.
The history behind the Montague Boot Company comes alive with displays for Justin Boots and Nocona Boots, as well as stations showing the manufacturing process itself: the types of leather used for boots, sewing machines, stitching machines, shaping, sole and heel construction.
Handmade leather products from both Nokona Ball Glove and Montague Boot Company will be featured, along with other western wear and baseball items.
