WASHINGTON COUNTY HISTORICAL COMMISSION TO BE HONORED

Washington County Judge John Brieden says that while the county is a ‘gold mine’ of history, that history needs to be recorded, managed and preserved.

For the past 20 years nobody has done this better than the Washington County Historical Commission under the leadership of Dr. Wilfred Dietrich.  That’s why Judge Brieden says, they will recognize the local commission for its recognition from the Texas Historical Commission for Distinguished Service.
