Varner-Hogg Takes History to the Teachers

by Sue Miller, site manager for Varner Hogg Plantation


Varner-Hogg Plantation State Historic Site Curator Angela Pfeiffer and I recently had the pleasure of participating in the Houston Museum Alliance’s Educators Open House. The Alliance hosted more than 25 museums, aquariums, gardens and historic sites at five Houston locations.
We were stationed in the Great Hall at the Houston Museum of Natural Science, where we spoke with more than 100 educators and museum visitors. What a great opportunity it was to talk about everything Varner-Hogg has to offer educators. We hope to be seeing some of the teachers and their students soon on the plantation. It was our first year at the event — but you can be sure it won’t be our last.

Varner-Hogg Plantation is located two miles north of West Columbia on FM 2852 in the Texas Independence Trail Region.
