North Texas History Center explores accounts of North Texas
pioneers in exhibit opening June 27 By Barbara Cramer, North Texas History Center Public Relations & Marketing Specialist

Why did you move to Texas?

McKINNEY, Texas (June 17, 2009) - The first immigrants to
North Texas arrived in the 1830s, mostly from Tennessee,
Kentucky, the Carolinas, and other Upper Southern and Midwestern
states. The new exhibit, Pioneer Roots, reflects first person
stories from North Texas pioneers, and highlights three distinct
waves of immigration: Pre-Civil War, Post-Civil War, and circa

"One of the interesting things you´ll learn in this
exhibit is that some of the reasons people moved to Texas then
are the same reasons people move here now: the land is cheap,
there are many opportunities, and their family lives
here," said Sarah Hatcher, Education Curator for NTHC.
. . .
"The photos of this area are phenomenal and a great deal
of research was conducted on Pre-Civil War Era ranchers,"
said Bryan Lean, Senior Curator at NTHC.

The exhibit opens June 27 and is filled with fascinating
artifacts for the whole family to enjoy. In addition to the
traditional main gallery, there is the non-traditional Hands-on
Gallery, which allows visitors to experience what life was like
for pioneers.

Admission is $4 for adults, $2 for children, and $8
for families. The museum also features a gift shop that offers a
wide variety of items for both kids and parents.
