On Saturday 9.17.11 the Collin County Historical Society sponsored an informal “talk and tasting” at the North Texas History Center (NTHC).
Dozens of spectators listened in as Randy Farmer, author of “From Blackland Prairie to Blacktop. A History of Collin County”, recounted the early days of the North Texas Caddo Tribes. Together with former NTHC Executive Director Vicki Day, Farmer compared the fare of the early Collin County pioneers to what we might serve our families today.
As a special treat, Dallas Morning News Food column contributor and TownSquareBuzz.com’s own Kyra Effren prepared samples of snacks and treats for all to enjoy based on recipes from our Texas pioneers.
The next Collin County Historical Society event is slated for October 22, 2011 at 2 PM. This special event will celebrate the 100th anniversary of the old Collin County Post Office, the current home of the NTHC. At the occasion, CCHS Board member and former Celina ISD Superintendent Don Newsom will provide a glimpse into the history of our postal system, particularly as it relates to North Texas.
