City of Alamo Museum Hosting STHA Symposium

The South Texas Historical Association in conjunction with the City of Alamo Museum will be holding an international symposium on South Texas history Friday and Saturday, Nov. 1-2.
The association’s fall conference at Bowie Parental Engagement School in Alamo will be celebrating the uniqueness of South Texas’ heritage with a panel of more than a dozen distinguished speakers, along with exhibits about World War II and model railroading, and a variety of vendors. The symposium, which is part of a 65-year tradition of sharing and educating people on South Texas history, kicks off with a 6:30 p.m. reception on Thursday, Oct. 31, at the City of Alamo Museum, 130 South 8th Street. The open house will include a meet and greet with the speakers and conference members along with refreshments. A patriotic quilt gift to a U.S. service veteran is also being planned that evening. The two day symposium is free except for a $10 catered lunch each day. To pre-register or to gain more information, stop at the City of Alamo Museum, at 130 South 8th Street, or phone 956-961-4398.
