BELOW: PRESERVING HISTORY
Milano Evening Lions Club past-president James Walker (R) presents a certificate of appreciation to Stan Graves for a program presented to the club Feb. 6 at the Milano Senior Citizens Center. Graves had a Texas-size impact on historic preservation during his 26 years as Director of the Architecture Division of the Texas Historical Commission. He showed photos and discussed many of the Texas courthouses which were preserved during his tenure. Graves was born and raised near Sharp and graduated from Rockdale High School.

DOES IT HAVE APPS?
The phone Charlie Watson holds was high tech. In the 1890s.
The Rockdale Historical Society volunteer showed it off to a group of second graders Friday who weren’t quite sure what to make of it. The Rockdale Elementary School second grade toured the I&GN Historical Depot on the final day of Texas Public Schools Week, and also the final day before spring break throughout the state.
