Fulshear-Simonton Heritage Society Founded

Fulshear-Simonton Heritage Society Founded

It’s another historical moment-in-time for the Fulshear-Simonton community. Thankfully, this time, it’s not a flood or a fire, but the formation of the Fulshear-Simonton Heritage Society. Both Fulshear and Simonton have partnered together in the past with the Fulshear-Simonton Volunteer Fire Department, the Bob Lutts Fulshear-Simonton Library, and of course the Fulshear-Simonton Lions Club!
Frances Smart and Jo Douglass, two long-time residents and best friends have been collecting historical items for many years. It has long been their dream to open a museum so others may begin to understand and appreciate the unique history of Fulshear-Simonton.
