1919 Hurricane 100th Anniversary

The 1919 Hurricane event at the Texas Maritime Museum was a great success. We have a video of the event available on our YouTube Channel for anyone who may have missed it or would like to see it again. The video is located here: 1919 Hurricane 100th Anniversary Video

Guy Clark Tribute

The two Guy Clark Tribute concerts by Verlon Thompson and Shawn Camp to support the Aransas County Historical Society on August 1st and 2nd are now fond memories for hundreds of fans from near and far and have become a part of Aransas County history. Both shows sold out and were a raging success. The Aransas County Historical Society would like to thank our sponsors, volunteers and the old and new Guy Clark fans that attended the excellent performances that were entertaining, often amusing and sometimes deeply moving. Hopefully, we will have another opportunity to bring these great performers back to Rockport-Fulton sometime in the future.


The Aransas County Historical Society now has some of the oral history interview recordings available online. These are in their original unedited form so, in some cases, the quality is marginal but the content is priceless. You may listen to the recordings by clicking on the file names located on this page:
