Texas is well known for its history throughout time. Following the history of Texas, there are many different myths and legends. From the First Texans to the Legend of Houston, the oil industry all the way to the myth of the Cowboy Culture. I’m going to talk about just ten of these myths and legends that I find interesting.
It must have been 13 years or so since I have been to the art museum, back in elementary school, on a one of a kind field trip. 13 years is way too long to have been away from the art museum, as my experience this year reminded me that. It was a beautiful, sunny October day, although it felt like July, and it was an even better day to talk a walk through the vast, mesmerizing pieces of art that the museum has to offer. The North Carolina Museum of Art provides an abundance of artwork from various time periods, cultures, and one can find art anywhere from Egyptian, to classical, to modern and contemporary art. The artwork that the museum provides not only displays an abundance of artwork, but

The Robert Russa Moton Museum, is located in Farmville, Prince Edward County, Virginia. In 1939 it was known as Robert Russa Moton High School. It was a single-story brick building that contained six classrooms and a small auditorium. The building was holding about five-hundred students yet it was built to only hold one-hundred and eighty students. This was a school for African Americans students only. The large well equipped whites only Farmville High School served as a reminder to the students of Moton High School that it was separate but definitely not equal. There were many major differences between the two high schools. In Monton High School they were forced to learn in shack like buildings that lacked a proficient heating source. The
Shelby County was one of the original thirteen counties in Texas, being organized by the Republic of Texas Congress in 1837. The county was named for Isaac Shelby, an American military hero and Governor of Kentucky.

In the small farming community of Goodland, Kansas, stands the High Plains Museum. The High Plains museum offers numerous exhibits on the prairie life and the life of a Kansas homesteader throughout each era displayed.

Canada is a multicultural nation whose population was vastly built through the immigration of peoples from around the world. The McCord Museum of Canadian History explores Canada’s multiculturalism through several exhibits. The museum was brought to life by David Ross McCord who wished to “shed light on the history and cultures of his country and thus bring its people together.” The Museum features several exhibits which are physically available at the museum, and some of which are available online. One of the online exhibits entitled Being Irish O’Quebec explores the impact in which Irish culture has had on the province of Quebec from past to present.
The Settlement of Texas is an important act in history. It all started with a man named Moses Austin and his son Stephen F. Austin. If these men had not worked and some even given their lives to Texas becoming independent, we would not have the 28th state of Texas.
Howell states that “educational development at the county level is significant to Texas history for several reasons.” One reason that he states, is that “it provides a measure of how important free public education was to the citizens of Texas counties by comparing how quickly they complied with various state school laws passed late in the 1850’s”
This was my first trip to Lincoln County and the Death County Bowl, and I have to say this was one of the better ran bowl games I have ever attended. Easy parking,very fan friendly, the people working the game was as good as they get and the little perks were very nice. Just to name two of the perks, all fans were handed a colored program and their were fans for the fans, who wanted them. Then some of the students were walking the stands and making sure everyone had one of the very nicely put together programs.
The West Georgia Museum of Tallapoosa is a blast from the past for most of the older generation while the younger generations get to see how their grandparents or great grandparents got to live long before they were born. The overall theme of the museum is honoring and memorializing the old city of Tallapoosa. When exploring the little museum, there are displays of old stores and work offices such as a dentist office or a doctor’s office display from the 1800’s. These displays are interesting to look at because most of the stuff on display in each of these rooms are actual items from that time or very close to that era. When viewing these rooms, there is a button viewers can press which activates a narrator to tell them what they are viewing
The Tarrant County Courthouse is a beautiful structure full of historical importance that deserves to be treasured. Tarrant County is the story of Indian battles, cattle drives, gunfights, and plantations. Railroads and high-tech assembly lines all happened here. The mission of Tarrant County Historical Commission is to “ensure that the story is saved, and savored for generations to come.” The commission meets regularly six times a year. Commissioners court, appoints two year terms. Commissioners operate their own by-laws, and are in close association with the Texas Historical Commission in Austin. “Tarrant County’s businesses today reach around the globe and the county’s commercial and industrial airports are among the country’s foremost international gateways.” Tarrant County was named after Edward H. Tarrant, a military commander, Texas Ranger, and an Indian fighter who was the man responsible for the removal of most Indians who lived in the area.
