Texas A&M Students Visit the Brinkley Davis House

Texas A&M's Dr. Brent Fortenberry and the students in his Recording Historic Buildings course visited the Brinkley Davis House on September 9, 2018.  Dr. Fortenberry is using the structure to teach his students about mid-19th century architecture and construction.  Over the course of three visits, the class will also thoroughly study the structure and will document it by creating measured drawings that meet the Historic American Buildings Survey standards.  These will be archived in the Library of Congress.

Distinguished Service Award

The Texas Historical Commission recently honored the Limestone County Historical Commission with a Distinguished Service Award for the 2017 year of service.  The THC issues Distinguished Service Awards each year to CHCs that exemplify exceptional service and dedication to the State of Texas.  This award was presented to the Limestone CHC on August 14, 2018 by Limestone County Judge Richard Duncan during a meeting of the Limestone County Commissioners Court. 

Receiving the Distinguished Service Award from Judge Duncan are CHC members Joe Phillips, Cindy Pollard, Donald McDonald, Linda Jordan, Bruce Jordan, and Terri Lenamon. Seated is John McCarver, Precinct 1 Commissioner. (Photo Courtesy of Joyce Bateman)
