Upcoming Museum Events

  • Exhibit: Nuestra comunidad: Williamson County’s Hispanic Roots

    In 1747, Spanish priests became the earliest settlers in the area, founding the short-lived San Xavier missions. Hispanic families continued to settle and shape this area over the next two and a half centuries. As one of the fastest growing population groups in the U.S., many are unaware of the long history of Hispanics in this area and their lasting contributions to the community. From pushing for desegregation, fair wages and labor practices to keeping their heritage alive- the roots of the Hispanic community run deep in Williamson County.
