Travel Back to Cypress 100 Years

Cypress "business district" in 1907

If you think the Cypress area is busy now, then you should have seen it a hundred years ago! The Cypress Historical Society will do just that with its informative and entertaining presentation on the area way back when.

Come and be surprised by all that has changed. Be even more surprised by what hasn't changed. The program is on Saturday, October 31, at 1:00 PM. We'll be done well before your trick-or-treating kicks off.

This presentation is in conjunction with this year's Gulf Coast Reads selection, The Promise, by Ann Weisgarber.
