Sue Butler Carter, president, Karnes County Historical Society; Barbara May Welder, chairperson, Bee County Historical Commission; David Chapman; Willene (Wish) Taylor, vice-president, Karnes County Historical Society; Truett Hunt, chairperson, Karnes County Historical Commission, and Maggie Hunt attended the Annual Historic Preservation Conference in Austin, March 31 through April 2, 2011.

The conference is hosted by the Texas Historical Commission in association with Preservation Texas. At the conference there were workshops and panels on important preservation issues conducted by experts in architecture, archeology, economic development and heritage tourism.

Our Karnes County representatives met with peers from many other counties and representatives from Preservation Texas and the THC. It was a great opportunity to learn how Karnes County can benefit from the resources available. Work is underway to develop and implement plans to maximize the tremendous potential of our Helena complex and other historical areas.

The Karnes County Historical Society and Commission fully support and work toward the full restoration of the Karnes County Courthouse. You can join them in their many activities as they work to revitalize and preserve the historic areas of Karnes County. Contact Sue (210-710-4896) ( for more information on how you can become involved.
