Mark your calendar for our 2023 exhibit
Opens Monday, July 10, and closes Saturday, Aug. 19, in the lobby of Southlake Town Hall.
This exhibit of stunning photographs taken by Bill Wittliff during the filming of the “Lonesome Dove” miniseries isn’t to be missed.
The photographs come from the famed Wittliff Collections at Texas State University in San Marcos. The exhibit is sponsored by Humanities Texas.
In the meantime, we encourage you to re-read your dogeared copy of Larry McMurtry’s Pulitzer Prize-winning “Lonesome Dove.” (If you’ve never read it, pick up a copy – you won’t put it down.) And watch the miniseries, too.
The Southlake Historical Society is dedicated to archiving historical materials, gathering oral history interviews, presenting exhibits that showcase the events and lives of folks who came before us and working to preserve and protect Southlake’s history.
The society meets at 3 p.m. on the second Monday of each month. If you would like to join us, please email email@example.com.
