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

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:
