Information sharing meeting on Bankhead Highway Thursday

The Texas Historical Commission (THC) is undertaking a two-year study of the historic Bankhead Highway. As part of this project, there will be a public outreach meeting tonight, Thursday, Aug. 8,

from 5:30-7:30 p.m. at the Cultural Arts Center in downtown Mount Vernon. Local citizens are urged to dig into old trunks, the family’s older photo albums, and the old barn or storage building for items to share from 1916-1926 era of the Bankhead Highway. See the Aug. 8 edition of the Mount Vernon Optic-Herald for more details.
