Enloe Museum Bricks

The Clara Foster Slough Museum has declared 2014, the year of the brick !  The museum has cleaned and stockpiled bricks, to create front and side walls for the museum.  The rear expansion is also incorporating brick into the flooring.  The real showcase of bricks, will be the front walkway !  We need to complete the front walkway with the memorial and contributor brick.  There exists a limited number of brick spaces, for the front walkway, for personalized brick to be installed.  These have been a great fund raiser for the museum, as well as an awesome way to recognize people, families, groups, and companies, that are and have been important to Enloe.  Please consider ordering a brick, to support the museum, and especially, to remind those who enter and walk the sidewalk, of those who are a part of the history of Enloe !

Lane Duncan tends to a few weeds on the Enloe Museum walkway.

Clara Foster Slough Museum sidewalk bricks will be a focus for 2014 projects.

The sidewalk bricks provided for the Clara Foster Slough Museum by generous contributors.

Lane Duncan plans to learn about laying brick in 2014, at the Clara Foster Slough Museum.

Basically, this is how it works:

To purchase a brick, provide the engraving you would like to have etched into the brick.
Use a maximum of three lines, with a maximum of 18 letters per line, in your design.
Send us your requested lettering for the brick to:

ENLOE MUSEUM
ATTN: BRICK PROGRAM
PO BOX 63
ENLOE, TX 75441

With your request, please submit a check, money order, cashiers check, or some form of barter, for the amount of $ 50.00

We appreciate each and every brick requested, and recognize the importance of each contributor in this program.

For more information on ordering brick, contact the Clara Foster Slough Museum at enloemuseum@gmail.com

* Also, we plan to salute, each and every brick donor, memorial, or sponsor, via our FaceBook page.  The salute can be on a birthday, anniversary, or any special day.  We may choose these at random, or if you would like to provide a requested date of remembrance, please include.  Any interesting detail or story, should be included with your brick purchase, as this will be recorded in the museum, and used for future references to your brick.  Thank you for your considerations, donations, and interest in our museum !

Enloe Museum Receives Texas and US Flags

The Clara Foster Slough Museum in Enloe is now the proud owner of a new flag pole.  Richard Duncan recently installed the post, along side of the museum in the alley, where outdoor exhibits are planned.  Lane Duncan presented the museum with a Texas State flag, which was flown over the capitol in Austin on August 8th, in honor or Richard Duncan and the Clara Foster Slough Museum, on Richards birthday.  Also, on August 8th, a US flag was flown over our Nations capitol in Washington, in honor of Richard and the Clara Foster Slough Museum.  We now have both flags, and will proudly display them during Enloe events !  We would like to thank the Congressman Ralph M. Hall, Architect of the Capitol Stephen T. Ayers, the Texas House of Representatives, and Sergeant-at-Arms Rod Welsch, and everyone involved in arranging for this honor.  We would like to recognize our own, Lane Duncan, for presenting the flags to the Clara Foster Slough Museum !

CLARA FOSTER SLOUGH MUSEUM RECEIVES HOCKADAY CENTENNIAL ANTHOLOGY

The Clara Foster Slough Museum is one of the first recipients of the just released Hockaday Anthology publication, printed in honor of the Hockaday Centennial Celebration.  This awesome book, containing details of the rich Hockaday history, is a great historical document.  The Clara Foster Slough Museum is so proud to have such a publication, which compliments the Hockaday family records, already documented in the genealogy archives.  We would like to recognize Angel and Lane Duncan, for presenting this document to the Enloe Museum, during the Enloe Homecoming 2013 celebration.  This limited edition document, is certainly a great addition to the Clara Foster Slough Museum.

ENLOE HOMECOMING 2013

The Enloe Homecoming 2013 was a roaring success, with well over 100 families represented at the gathering !  The Clara Foster Slough Museum welcomed many repeat visitors and several new guests, as the day unfolded.  Many friends and family toured the exhibits and discussed the artifacts, and some genealogy information was shared for the archives.  We certainly appreciate all of the information that the museum staff was allowed to copy and note.  As always, everyone shared the same feeling throughout the day, "we wished we had more time" !!  Everyone has busy schedules, and we certainly appreciate the time taken for the visits !!  See everyone next year !!
