  • A portion of the first floor Texas History Galleries at the Bullock Texas State History Museum is closed and undergoing construction for a new permanent exhibition that will explore the earliest stories of Texas before it acquired its famous borders. The exhibition, Becoming Texas: Our Story Begins Here, covers more than 14,000 years of history, starting with the small stone weapon with a broken tip, a projectile point discovered just north of Austin in 2011.
  • Bailey Inglish's great-great granddaughter, Patty Grill-Flaherty, and her husband, James Flaherty, pose by the historical marker in front of a replica of the fort constructed 180 years ago by the early frontiersman.
  • A free Public Safety Picnic is scheduled for Saturday, September 29, from 10:00 a.m. until 4:00 p.m., on the Grayson County Courthouse Lawn. This is a chance to dunk a deputy and proceeds will benefit local law enforcement by providing safety equipment. Plan to make a day of it in Sherman by visiting local shops, enjoying the local cuisine and talking to non-profits as well as law enforcement personnel.

The Little Rock Nine was a group of nine African American students enrolled in Little Rock Central High School in 1957. Their enrollment was followed by the Little Rock Crisis, in which the students were initially prevented from entering the racially segregated school by Orval Faubus, the Governor of Arkansas. They then attended after the intervention of President Dwight D. Eisenhower.
