Historical marker event Saturday

 

The La Vernia Historical Association invites the public to three events in celebration of two new historical markers for Wilson County. The first is the opportunity to hear professional historian Allen Kosub at a lecture on the “Cibolo Crossing East of the Alamo” on Tuesday, May 7, at 7 p.m. in the GVEC Community Room at 13849 U.S. 87 West in La Vernia. Call 830-779-2636 to make a reservation, as seating is limited.

On Saturday, May 11, the association will unveil two new historical markers, “The Cibolo Crossing on the Gonzales Road” and “Susanna Dickinson -- Alamo Survivor.” The dedication ceremony will be at 10 a.m. at the actual site of the crossing, about 1.5 miles north of La Vernia.

The ceremony will take place near the water’s edge, at the actual crossing. The site is not wheelchair-accessible, but a small vehicle will be available to assist as much as possible.

Members of the Daughters of the American Revolution, Susanna Dickinson Chapter will be special guests at the ceremony. The markers will later be placed at their permanent location on F.M. 775 at the Wilson/Guadalupe county line.

Following the dedication ceremony is the grand opening of a new exhibit at the La Vernia Heritage Museum, “The Cibolo Crossing on the Gonzales Road” and “Susanna Dickinson - Alamo Survivor,” from 1-4 p.m. Funding for the exhibit was provided by a donation from the San Antonio River Authority. The museum is located on U.S. 87 at F.M. 775 behind the La Vernia City Hall. Museum hours are the first and third Sunday of the month from noon to 3 p.m., and by appointment. Admission is free; donations are appreciated. The museum is closed until Saturday, May 11.
