Magoffin Home to Revive UTEP History

By on October 15, 2013

Each fall, the Magoffin Home hosts a special living history program for two nights only. This year, the time travel experience takes participants back in to time to January 2, 1936–a moment when El Paso was preparing to celebrate the centennial of Texas independence. Performers will mention the parade, football game, rodeo, as well as the city’s debate over where to establish a museum (spoiler alert: UTEP’s Centennial Museum was selected). The program is built upon the research of our blog’s own Abbie Weiser. For more on the event click here or see below.
