New and returning members of the Hays County Historical Commission
New and returning members of the Hays County Historical Commission recently sworn in by Hays County Judge Bert Cobb, M.D., posed in the courthouse rotunda in front of a photo of Jack Coffee Hays.
“With this excellent mix of new and experienced members, we’ll be able to continue some important projects and begin new ones,” HCHC Chair Kate Johnson said. “We are restoring the Old Hays County Jail and helping to raise funds for the Kyle Depot. And, we continue to seek items for exhibits in the Hays County Courthouse Museum.” The museum is open the first and third Saturdays of each month from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. and at other times by appointment.
The HCHC conducts research, places official Texas Historical Markers and surveys and maintains cemeteries. HCHC members also create documentary videos about Hays County history and are currently working on the fifth in the series – the story of the Kuykendall Family and the 101 Ranch. A premier date is planned for late March.
