HISTORY ZONE

THE MKT: MORE THAN A RAILROAD 

This year’s History Zone display focuses on the railroad’s influence on the daily lives of its employees.

For many, the Katy was far more than a place to work; being a Katy employee meant being a member of “the Katy family.”

This exhibit illustrates how the railroad impacted the lives of its employees—on and off the job. It focuses on three areas: Katy employees at work, at play, and at community events. As always, the “Zone” will contain historic photographs and memorabilia associated with the railroad, in this case, illustrating how the railroad touched people’s lives.

The “History Zone” is located in the Arvon Phillips Recreation Center and will be open from 4 p.m. until 8 p.m. on Friday and 9 a.m. until 5 p.m. on Saturday during Katy Days weekend, May 23rd - 25th.

For more information about the History Zone display, contact Mike Brotherton at 717.1066 or Dave Mattox at 421. 6771.

Don’t miss this very special “Zone” exhibit!
