Members’ Choice Project

The winning 2022 Members’ Choice Project was… Re-install two of Tyler’s historical markers.

Each year, we set aside a portion of your membership dues to directly fund one of three projects and YOU vote for the winner. In 2022, the voting took place July 29 – 31 and over 400 votes were cast. The winning project was to re-install two of Tyler’s historical markers.

Thanks to you, these beautiful sand-cast signs were re-installed in late December 2022! One is displayed in our parking lot and the other is displayed along the fence line near Ridley Creek State Park. These locations are ideal because you can walk right up to them to read and enjoy them. The historic markers continue to show their charming wear and tear, which is the result of previous decades of display in the great outdoors. The Members’ Choice Project is a direct result of your membership support. Thank you for helping us re-install these two pieces of history!
