Bellaire history buffs are invited to an event on Thursday to learn more about an influential woman in Texas 20th century history who was known as “The First Lady of Texas.”
The Bellaire Historical Society is hosting a talk on Nov. 12 to learn about Ima Hogg, whose father was the first native-born governor of Texas. Hogg was known as a philanthropist, educator, musician and patron of the arts.
The history lesson is presented by Annette Mullendore, a docent of the Bayou Bend Collection and Gardens at the Museum of Fine Arts of Houston. It begins at 6:30 p.m. at the Bellaire City Hall L.I.F.E. Activity Center, 7008 S. Rice Ave.
