Exploring History Lunch Lecture Series

On the third Wednesday of the month from 11:30 AM to 1:00 PM, the College Station Historic Preservation Committee and the Senior Advisory Committee invite speakers to come to the College Station Conference Center, 1300 George Bush Drive, to share their knowledge of local history with members of the community. A light luncheon is served for $5.00 per person. The programs are videotaped and broadcast weekly on CSTV-19.  

Reservations are required and can be made by calling 979-764-3491 or by emailing Anne Boykin, Heritage Programs Coordinator, at aboykin@cstx.gov.

The programs for the remainder of the year include:
