Photos, stories, memorabilia wanted for information sharing

Mount Vernon is one of just eight locations state-wide for an information sharing/gathering meeting on all things of the Bankhead Highway. The local event has been set from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. Thursday, Aug. 8 at the Cultural Arts Center.

The project will result in a written history of the Texas section of the Bankhead Highway and a survey of the Texas Bankhead route, including associated historic resources: auto repair garages, gas stations, diners, tourist camps, auto courts, motels, road markers, paving, traffic signs, and bridges. For more information, see the Aug. 1 edition of the Mount Venron Optic-Herald.
