An exhibit about the life of Sandra Day O'Connor opens this week in Fort Worth.

It's been 30 years since Sandra Day O'Connor became the first woman to serve on the U.S. Supreme Court.

An exhibit about her life opens this week at the National Cowgirl Museum and Hall of Fame in Fort Worth.

O'Connor is an El Paso native who spent summers on her family's Arizona ranch that initially didn't have electricity or water.

She said Wednesday she was pleased with the exhibit. She said her time on the ranch taught her responsibility and how to solve problems on her own.

The 3,000-square-foot exhibit opening Thursday features some items from her family's ranch and a robe from her time on the Supreme Court. She retired in 2006.

In 2002 she was inducted into the Cowgirl Hall of Fame.
