UPDATE: Ticket sales have ended.

The El Paso County Historical Society is pleased to announce the selection of Mr. Colbert Coldwell, Mr. Joseph Ray, Mr. Jack Maxon, and Ms. Mary Haynes, to the 2021 Hall of Honor.

This year we will be celebrating the 2021 and 2020 honorees as we were unable to host our annual Hall of Honor last year in 2020. We are pleased to also induct Mr. Rick Francis, Ms. Janice Woods Windle, Ms. Maude Craig Sampson Williams, and Mr. William J. Hooten to the EPCHS Hall of Honor and celebrate them this year.

The event will be held at the Plaza Hotel Pioneer Park, 106 W. Mills Ave., El Paso, TX 79901, on Sunday, November 14, 2021, at 11:00am MT. The event will include a plated lunch, awards presentation, and silent auction.

Seats for the event are $100 each for El Paso County Historical Society members, and $125 each for non-members. All proceeds will benefit the El Paso County Historical Society for preservation of its archives and maintenance of the 106 year-old the Burges House located at 603 W. Yandell.
