Cowtown to host the Texas State Historical Association

Will Rogers Coliseum

Will Rogers Memorial Center is located in Fort Worth’s Cultural District. The Art Deco building is home of the Southwestern Exposition and Livestock Show.

As the Fort Worth Stock Show and Rodeo winds down at the end of this week, the Texas State Historical Association’s 2013 Annual Meeting will be here before we know it. The meeting is always held the week of the anniversary of Texas’ independence from Mexico — March 2, 1836. And this year, it will be here in Fort Worth!

Known as “Where the West Begins,” Fort Worth is home to great art and its share of history, including the Historic Stockyards. Whether in town or not, check out Fort Worth’s new JFK Tribute to President Kennedy and the final speeches that he gave the morning of Nov. 22, 1963.

Early registration for the 2013 TSHA meeting ends February 8th. The full program (with some great images from the Tarrant County Archives) is available on the TSHA website.
