Celebration to mark Stone Fort Museum’s 80th anniversary tomorrow
Alongside Nacogdoches’ celebration of its 300th anniversary and SFA’s preparation for its 100th, the Stone Fort Museum on campus will honor 80 years of service to the university and community during a celebration tomorrow.
“The opening of the facility represented the culmination of work by a variety of groups in town, including the Nacogdoches Historical Society and the Cum Concilio Club,” said Carolyn Spears, museum director. “In 1936, the museum began its life on the SFA campus when the Board of Regents of Texas State Teachers College accepted the building from the Texas Centennial Commission and the Nacogdoches Historical Society. Concluding 80 years of service in 2016, the museum celebrates not just our past but looks to the future.”
