The Moody Museum Victorian Christmas

Join us at The Moody Museum for a Victorian Christmas on December 2, 2017 from 1pm – 3pm. Create Victorian ornaments, enjoy holiday music and snacks, and get a tour of the Moody Museum from our loyal docents.

Parents sometime help their young children in making decorations which they then take home with them.



Governor’s Birthday Celebration

The next big event for the museum will be a celebration of the Governor’s birthday in June. For the third year it will be the culmination of a “pounding” to raise much-needed food for the local Shepherd’s Heart Food Pantry.

Poundings were commonplace in Governor Moody’s time and consisted of friends and family bringing food to stock the pantry of a newlywed couple. Gov. Moody and his bride, Mildred, benefitted from one hosted by the East Texas Chamber of Commerce to stock the pantry of the Governor’s Mansion in 1927 when Moody took office.
