If you appreciate history you will surely enjoy this report of breaking news from Liberty County Historical Commission chair - Linda Jamison. She tells us, three historical marker applications from Liberty Co. forwarded to the Texas Historical Commission in Austin have now been approved. Some of these applications are to commemorate specific historic subjects, some are about historic buildings or people worthy of recognition for the part they played in local history. The Liberty Co. Historical Commission members and its long time chair, Linda Jamison, are appointees of the Liberty County Commissioners court. The County historical commission, all volunteers, had submitted applications for three markers to the Texas State Historical commission and now Linda Jamison has told her committees that all three all have been approved at the state level. One is a W. C. ABBOTT subject marker; another is LIBERTY COUNTY BANK - ZBRANEK BUILDING, on the courthouse square, as a Recorded Texas Historic Landmark; and THE LOVETT HOUSE has received Recorded Texas Historical landmark status. Ms Jamison also revealed the Liberty County Historical Commission has also been approved for processing of a Historic Texas Cemetery designation on WELLS CEMETERY in Cleveland/Tarkington area. She said an application has also been submitted for a state historic designation for the Wright Cemetery in the Tarkington area. There are also county markers being processed for St. Anne's Catholic Church on FM 686 in Eastgate, for The Texan Theater in downtown Cleveland. and there is work going on for a historic application for "Old City Hall" on Church Street in Dayton. That building is on its way to being a Police Museum in Dayton. The Liberty County Historic Commission is recognized as one of Texas’ very best county historic commissions. This report is an example as to why they have such high state wide recognition.
