This Sunday afternoon, please come to the Boonville Heritage Park, in front of the historic Boonville Cemetery on Boonville Road, 1/4 mile east of Highway 6. The brief program will be at 3:00 p.m., followed by tours of the buildings, statues and plaques which tell of the early history of Brazos County and its pioneers. We will have plenty of chairs and shade trees, so set your phones to remind you to attend.
Also, this year is the 175th anniversary of the establishment of Brazos County by the legislature of the Republic of Texas. The Brazos County Historical Commission has ordered a very limited supply of souvenir wooden nickels for this occasion. We will probably give them all away Sunday, so come out to get your free souvenir and see the Boonville Heritage Park.
