HISTORICAL HAPPY HOUR
The Brownsville Historical Association hosts monthly happy hours at our museums, which are located throughout the Mitte Cultural District and downtown Brownsville. The Historical Happy Hours are a great way to explore the BHA’s museums after hours. We announce the theme and drink selections for each happy hour on our official Facebook page.
EXHIBIT OPENINGS AND LECTURES
The vaults of Market Square house one of the largest South Texas photograph collections in the Rio Grande Valley, fine art, historical costumes, furniture, sculpture, and numerous historical documents. Throughout the year, we highlight select artifacts from the vaults for educational purposes.
Rumor has it that ghosts have been spotted at the Old City Cemetery and at other sites throughout the city. Due to our historical curiosity, the Brownsville Historical Association partners with the RGV Paranormal Investigators and hosts ghost hunts at historical buildings.
HISTORIC WALKING TOURS
Brownsville is a city with a rich history and the Brownsville Historical Association is thrilled to be your guide. In the fall and winter months, we offer an array of tours where you will explore historical sites and learn about the people that helped shape this community. Our tours are led by professors from the University of Texas at Rio Grande Valley and other trained professionals.
