The grand reopening of our museum at the Sam Houston Regional Library and Research Center was June 9, and we were so happy to celebrate this wonderful new space and its exhibit showcasing the history of Southeast Texas with so many members of the community. Here are some photos of the event, and some before and after shots to show the amazing transformation of the museum. Thank you to everyone who came out! And if you haven’t made the trip to Liberty to see the new exhibit, we hope you’ll visit soon!
