Dear Portal friends: Do you enjoy having history at your fingertips? We’ve appreciated your support over the years, and need your help to keep history alive. Here’s the deal: we’ve received a Challenge Grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities. Now it’s time to keep our word and raise matching funds for the Cathy Nelson Hartman Portal to Texas History Endowment. If even half the people who use the Portal this month give $5, we’d meet our $1.5 million goal immediately! All donations are tax-deductible and support Texas history: yesterday, today, and tomorrow.

These items are part of the acquistion of the Kochan-Reed house. All Items belonged to P.S. (Phillip Sanderfur) and Jane Reedf. P.S. died in 1995 and Jane followed in 1997. Fort Bend County donated the house to the George Foundation wanting to make the block a parking lot. The Foundation in turn authorized the Fort Bend Museum Association to prepare the house and collection for removal.
