Dallas Historical Society presents Brown Bag Lecture Encore: Coppell, Texas - A History
Join the Dallas Historical Society for the last Brown Bag Lecture Encore in 2016. Authors Jean Murph and Lou Duggan will be present to discuss their book Coppell, Texas - A History.
The book is about Coppell history which is rooted in peace and community. In 1843, Sam Houston met with ten native tribes along Grapevine Springs Creek to negotiate an accord to end fighting and allow trade and settlement in the area. When Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport opened in 1974, Coppell transformed from a farming hamlet into a thriving town with expanding economic opportunity. Through firsthand accounts with longtime residents and meticulous research, authors Jean Murph and Lou Duggan unfold the contemplative story of a complex and historic community.
Books will be available for purchase for the authors to sign.
