LEAGUE CITY, Texas — A quiet museum tucked into a neighborhood or a rowdy party space — those are the two conflicting views of League City’s Butler Longhorn Museum held by at least some of its neighbors.

The museum, located at 1220 Coryell St., is primarily meant to house artifacts from the city’s ranching and farming past and tell the story of the Butler Longhorns once raised in the area. But it also hosts historical or community events and, to help pay the bills, the museum can also be rented for events like weddings and parties.

It is those outdoor events and the noise that accompanies them that upset Gaylynne Wenzel. She lives across the street from the museum, Wenzel recently told the city council, and to her, the sound of music and people at events at the museum is becoming a problem.
