At the September 26, 2011 meeting a few folks brought some pictures that we have not seen. The purpose of the meeting was to scan and digitally archive the photos that were brought to the meeting to further our mission in preserving the history of our area. Please visit Waller County Historical Society to see all of the pictures and help us identify some of the people.
One picture was of the German Methodist Churches in Pattison with lots of members in attendance. We could use some help with names. One of the buildings in the pictures has been moved several times. Into Pattison and several places before finally landing in Monaville and still serving as a church.
We hope to have another night of preserving history in the near future. Not only do we preserve history, but just having the people and pictures there bring out stories of our history. Come, enjoy and preserve your history the next time we have a "scan your old photographs" meeting.
We also want to express our appreciation to Peggy and Junior McKay who not only helped advise and gave direction to the PAHS on which scanners to purchase for this ongoing historical preservation project, but they also assisted during the meeting scanning the photographs, too.
