Bee County is full of historic places designated in memory of events, subjects, people and places. With more than 50 historic markers in Bee County, which include all areas of the county, there are plenty of places for visitors and citizens to visit. This does not include the 45 plus surveyed cemeteries throughout the county. Most of these can be viewed on the Atlas of the Texas Historical Commission website: http://atlas.thc.state.tx.us/shell-county.htm.
We are often asked how to obtain a historic marker. All of the information will be available to the public free of charge at the Marker Workshop presented by the Texas Historical Commission on Saturday, June 29, at 1:30 p.m. in the Joe Barnhart Bee County Library. Refreshments will be served, and the public is invited.
We would like for everyone to join us with this unique and one-time-only experience on how to place a permanent remembrance of something or someone you cherish in Bee County. Please join us.
