What are your Pathways in Rockport, Fulton and Aransas County?

History Center

The History Center for Aransas County showcases local heritage.  Outdoor and indoor exhibits tell the stories of the real people of Aransas County. The Center provides space for displays, workshops, meetings and gatherings.

The Bruhl-Paul-Johnson house is a Queen Anne-Victorian cottage that was a popular style in the late 1800s. The house has had many owners including A.L. Bruhl, early 1900s pharmacist and Rockport mayor; Simon Paul, surveyor; and Chester Johnson who salvaged and moved the house from Wood and Laurel Streets in 1978 to make way for a bank parking lot. Even by the early 1900s, tourism began to play a significant role in the area’s economy.

Local history enthusiasts formed the Friends of the History Center for Aransas County in order to promote this historic venue of Aransas County and have applied for a non-profit 501(c)(3) corporation.

What a wonderful morning. We were so blessed to have so many beautiful plants be donated by TAMU Agrilife Extension Service at College Station to give away to Aransas County Residents. Lines began forming at 7:30 am. Giveaway began at 9:00. By 9:20, they were on their way to brighten many yards to grow until hummers come back this way.
