The Edwards Plateau Historical Association was organized in 1962 for the purpose of discovery, collection, preservation and publication of historical records and data relating to the Edwards Plateau.
The Association meets annually on the first Saturday in October, and several (three or four) papers pertaining to the history of the hosting community are given. The papers must be researched and documented, and a copy is presented to the Association to be published in the "The Edwards Plateau Historian". Each edition of "The Historian" contains about a collection of papers for the preceding five years.
Membership is open to anyone over the age of sixteen years. Persons residing outside the Edwards Plateau area may become non-voting members. Annual dues are $5 per person or $7.50 per couple.
Counties included are Sterling, Coke, Runnels, Coleman, Reagan, Irion, Tom Green, Concho, McCulloch, San Saba, Crockett, Schleicher, Menard, Mason, Llano, Burnet, Sutton, Kimble, Gillespie, Blanco, Val Verde, Edwards, Real, Kerr and Bandera.
The Edwards Plateau Historical Association is holding its annual meeting in Harper this year. The date is Saturday, October 2, and registration will be at 9:00 a.m.
Papers will be given on the following topics: "History of Spring Creek Cemetery", "Biography of Reverend William Bierschwale, Pioneer Presbyterian Minister", and "The Kent Family in the Texas Revolution".
The meeting is open to everyone; however, a lunch will be catered and reservations should be made in advance. At this time, I am not sure the cost of the lunch.
When we met with the Harper Historical Society, the members suggested meeting at the Harper Museum. Please contact Frederica Wyatt <firstname.lastname@example.org> for more information concerning this meetng.
