Nave Museum showcasing architectural history of the Crossroads

Posted: Updated:

The Nave Museum is welcoming a new exhibit called All the Houses were White.

It shows the work of Richard Gardner from 40 years ago.
"Photographs from the era of 1973 and 1975 from all the surrounding areas like Victoria, Schulenburg, Cuero, Goliad, Hallettsville. He took all these photos of classic woodwork houses," said Ochoa
Gardner's exhibit showcases pieces of history. Lead gallery attendant Justine Ochoa tells me she hopes that visitors see these works of art and appreciate how their home town has changed.
"When they come in here and they look at this, they see all the historical house and how they once were, and how they are still here until this day. Maybe not in the same shape or form but take a real good look at it and see how much thought went into the process of making these houses and building them for these people," explains Ochoa, lead gallery attendant.
Resident Sabre Sparkman's love for history inspired her to attend the gallery.
"I love old houses, it's something that's dear to my heart and so I actually get to enjoy. It's quiet and you can reflect on all of this stuff in here," says Sparkman.
Ochoa says the museum is free and the exhibit will be here until December 31st, so that is plenty of time for you to come check it out.
The museum's hours are Tuesday-Friday from 12pm to 5pm and Saturday, Sunday from 12pm to 4pm.
