Our online exhibits have been created by the staff of Moore Memorial Public Library over a two-year time period. To develop the articles, staff used print resources from our collection, archives and vertical file (including some materials that were donated to the library by community members), authoritative sources available through the Internet, and materials borrowed through interlibrary loan from other institutions. Our goal was to make the story of Texas City more accessible to its citizens and visitors, as well as to provide documentation of how our local history impacts, and is impacted by, the events and history of the Gulf Coast Region, the State of Texas, the United States and even the world.
These exhibits highlight the major events and people in the earliest days of Texas City's development. The stories and resources used in the exhibits are a portion of the vast resources that our Local History Librarian and staff currently maintain and add to as often as possible.
