Preserving history in Bryan-College Station and the Brazos Valley

Ramblers Events

Since COVID-19 We have transitioned to both in=person and Zoom for our meetngs which are held on the last Wednesday of the month at 9:30. In addition we have a mid-month meeting via Zoom only. . Some may not care for Zoom, however, this has enabled us to have speakers from all over the state and even from England at a much better rate than having to pay for travel expenses, so there are advantages. Below are some of our upcoming meetings and events:

Monthly Programs

May 31, 2023
Linda Duckett Attaway
Linda traces the footsteps in her great grandfather’s 1928 memoir of his Texas adventures. W. P. Duckett’s narrative (1852-1934) weaves a fascinating story from departing with a young wife in a covered wagon from Starrville, Smith County in 1874 to head west, temporarily settling then moving often while creating a myriad of businesses.

Our Texas native member presenter is a retired North Mesquite High School French teacher who enjoys creating genealogical research trips and writing about her discoveries. She is currently president of the Hiram Bennett Chapter of the D. R. T. and a member of the D.A. R. She has created three public presentations: “The French in Texas”; “Generals Washington and Lafayette: Side by Side”; and plays the part of General Santa Anna in a skit which is based on Michener’s The Eagle and the Raven.

June 28, 2023 Field Trip: The Brazos Valley African American Museum

The Museum is located in Bryan and focuses on exploring the cultural history and heritage of African Americans. The museum promotes individual and community awareness, understanding, pride and respect for the contributions that African Americans have made in the past and present to the American experience. At the museum, patrons can request an appointment to access the Family History Research Center with assistance from a volunteer to work on your individual family genealogy. A resource within a resource! The Ramblers will tour the museum led by Barry Davis, Museum Director and Richard Boivie, Rambler Museum Volunteer.
