Historical Documents Sought for Preservation

Donations of historical documents, photographs and, in some cases, clothing, continue to be made by Ennisites to the archive being assembled by local historian and Ennis News writer Randy Bryan Bigham. One of the latest offers of a contribution has come from former Ennis City Manager Steve Howerton, who wrote Bigham that he would like to see a number of civic documents included in the archive. “Several people have told me that you are collecting historical materials for Ennis,” he wrote, “and as I was going through old files I found copies of several public documents that would probably be of historical significance one day in the future.” Previous contributions to the growing collection include a digital copy of a children’s coloring book on the history of Ennis, published in the 1980s, which the Ennis Convention and Visitors Bureau retrieved recently and shared with Bigham. A further project is ongoing – the digitizing of the pages of a scrapbook on the Cerf mansion. The scrapbook belongs to Bill Snodgrass.
