The fifth annual Travis County History Day was a success! Thanks to all of you who were able to make it to the event.
Held on October 26, 2012, the event celebrated Travis County: Then and Now, by looking at the ways the county has changed over its history.
The event took place at 700 Lavaca in the Commissioners Courtroom, with historical displays presented in the Hall of Government.
History Day was preceded by a building dedication for 700 Lavaca led by Judge Samuel T. Biscoe, with remarks by Commissioners Margaret Gómez and Karen Huber.
We would like to thank Commissioner Margaret Gómez for acting as the Master of Ceremonies for History Day and our two speakers, R.G. Ratcliffe and Dr. Jeffrey S. Kerr.
Both Mr. Ratcliffe and Dr. Kerr presented riveting stories of early Travis County history.
