Historical West Wax Museum- Belle Starr


This scene from the old Historical West Wax Museum in Colorado Springs, shows famous female outlaw Belle Starr on her horse. Born in Missouri, she became one of the most popular women outlaws of her time. She robbed, stole, rustled, and hid other outlaws from the law. Eventually she was caught and served time in prison. Unfortunately, her criminal ways led her to a violent demise when she was shot to death by unknown assailants just shy of her 41st birthday.

Belle Starr sitting side saddle on her horse. It appears that her association with the wrong men led to her unlawful behavior. She was classically trained in piano, and attended private school. Only Belle's head is made of wax. The hands and body are covered, leading to a less expensive figure.
