MPHS Annual Convention

Date: Oct 06 - Oct 09, 2022
Time: 4:00 PM - 12:00 PM
The Missouri Pacific Historical Society Annual Meeting will be held in Palestine, Texas on October 6–8. Using previous years’ format, we will have activities from Thursday afternoon through Saturday night.
Palestine (Texan pronunciation Palesteen) was founded in 1846 as the seat of Anderson County. 2022 marks the 150th anniversary of arrival of the Houston & Great Northern and the International Railroad in 1872. Both roads combined to create the International-Great Northern. Shortly after the arrival of the railroad, Palestine became the general office and shop headquarters. The I-GN built a major depot in 1892 and a modern passenger coach shop in 1902, making Palestine an important locomotive and coach location.
