The next quarterly meeting of the Texas Heritage Society will be held on September 16, 2010 at 6:30 p.m. The meeting will be held at 18 West Shaker Court in The Woodlands. See map here. We have lined up another great speaker and Texas author, James L. Haley. James Haley is coming to speak to us on a couple of different topics. First he will speak to us about "ten tall Texans we have probably never heard of" and then he will discuss the house in Austin occupied by Susanna Dickinson (who survived the Battle of the Alamo) and her fifth husband which still stands and is now a museum. See Joseph and Susanna Dickinson Hannig Museum here.
