About Us

Since the successful bond issue of 2001, the City of Alvin has renovated the former post office to house the Alvin Historical Museum. Located at 300 W. Sealy, Alvin, Texas, the museum is a major on-going project of the Alvin Museum Society. Exhibits have been designed and fabricated, first-class movable shelving has been installed, offices have been outfitted with furnishings and basic computer equipment, and a breakroom for volunteers has been completed. Other exhibits are being designed and constructed. Except for the basic renovation costs, the Alvin Museum Society has paid for all other improvements through fundraising and generous in-kind gifts from individuals, local businesses and organizations.

The Alvin Historical Museum and Gift Shop officially opened to the public June 1, 2007. The museum and gift shop are open Thursdays, Fridays and the first Saturday of each month from 11:00 a.m. - 3:00 p.m. Admission is $3.00. The Alvin Museum Gift Shop provides a variety of books and other items.

Accessions Chairman Named

Tommy and Becky Peebles attended the August meeting of the Alvin Museum Society. Tommy was recently named Accessions Chairman for the Alvin Historical Museum. Along with his phenominal memory and love for local-history facts, Tommy is the ideal choice to head the committee responsible for logging in the museum's artifacts.

When speaking to Cleo Congrady, I was told that Tommy Peebles would be in charge of deciding what the museum accepts and what it does not. Now I hear that he has proposed a new numbering system. This is the third numbering system. Sounds like more delay. A committee was appointed to work on the entry into the computer of already existing ascensions in the Museum. That committee came up with a procedure that was accepted by Cleo Congrady. It has yet to be used, nor has that committee met again.
