Exhibit - George Louis Crocket: Out of the Ordinary

September 15, 2012 - May 18, 2013

George Louis Crocket: Out of the Ordinary

The newly installed exhibit examines the life and times of Dr. George Crocket. Born in the mid-nineteenth century, Crocket’s life spans a period of great changes in East Texas. The exhibit highlights not only the impact of his leadership on the development of Nacogdoches and San Augustine, but also invites the visitor to share in Crocket’s experiences through hands-on activities, including two period typewriters.

As a cleric, historian, mentor and artist, Crocket forged strong ties within both the Nacogdoches and San Augustine communities. The exhibit displays Crocket’s drawings, writing, and research that formed his legacy - one that reminds us to find the meaning of daily life out of the ordinary.
