Historical Society to hear of Ross Sterling, from farmer to governor

MARK STASNEY

The Crosby Historical Society will hold a public meeting and presentation “From Humble Beginnings” – a discussion of early economic development in our region told in part through the life & times of Ross S. Sterling, who began life as a small farmer on the east side of Trinity Bay, and went on to create the Humble Oil Company, build the Baytown Refinery and eventually become Governor of Texas. The presenter will be Mark Stasney. Our meeting will be held on December 4, 2021, at 2 p.m. at the Crosby Brethren Church Gym/Fellowship Building, 5202 Church Street.

We will also have an update on the Museum progress by Jody Fuchs. We also encourage attendees to bring artifacts, pictures, scrapbooks, etc. for sharing with the audience. You do not have to be a member of CHS to attend the meeting. Please join us.

A new membership drive will begin at this meeting for the 2022 fiscal year. CHS membership is $10 per household a year. This can be paid at the meeting or you can mail in a check made out to Crosby Historical Society and mailed to Donna Davenport, 5510 Avenue D, Crosby, TX 77532.
