Groundbreaking for Texas Rangers Museum

Several members of the Patrick Henry Chapter SAR attended the ground breaking for the “Texas Rangers Heritage Center” sponsored by the Former Texas Rangers Foundation in Fredericksburg.  “The Texas Rangers Heritage Center (TRHC) will be a state of the art immersive experience nestled between historic Fort Martin Scott and Baron’s Creek on Hwy 290 in Fredericksburg, Texas.  The TRHC is dedicated to the preservation of Ranger history for the education of youth.”  Governor Rick Perry (SAR member), State Representative Doug Miller, Fredericksburg Mayor Jeryl Hoover were guest speakers.  The site was “blessed” by Comanche Nation representative Bennie Tahmahkera, Jr.

Attending the ground breaking from Patrick Henry were John Knox, Wayne Courreges, Marvin Morgan and Robert Hites.  Two canons were furnished by Randy Billingsley and Leo Bush and his wife.

A good time was had by all.
