FROM STAFF REPORTS

BLANCO — The Blanco County Historical Commission will hold its quarterly meeting Sept. 26 at the Buggy Barn Museum and Pine-Moore Town.

Dennis Moore, creator of the two venues, is hosting the meeting. The museum is located at 1915 U.S. 281 North in Blanco.

Moore will make a presentation to the commission and other attendees about the in-progress development of Pine-Moore Town, which is part of the growth and redevelopment of the existing Buggy Barn Museum.

A tour of the facility will be part of the meeting.

Along with the updates on those projects, Moore will discuss his recent participation in the filming of the new WGN America series, “Underground,” from Sony Pictures TV and Tribune Studios. The story “follows a group of slaves who plan a daring escape from a Georgia plantation to cross 600 miles to freedom, aided along the way by a secret abolitionist couple running a station on the Underground Railroad, as they evade those tasked with bringing them back, dead or alive.”

The commission meeting is open to anyone who would like to attend. There will be light refreshments.
