Former Texas Governor James S Hogg

Virtually Varner-Hogg returns with a series of monthly programs for ages 12 and younger that introduces the community of people lived, worked and visited the plantation in the years from 1901 to 1920. After a brief program, children can join our educator for a hands-on activity made from materials found in most homes.

Virtually Varner-Hogg programs are free and open to the public.

James S. Hogg was Texas' first native-born governor. He was also a journalist, lawyer and business man. Most of all, Gov. Hogg was a father and part of the reason he bought the plantation in 1901 was to have a home where all of his children could gather on holidays and vacations. Join us live on Facebook to learn about Gov. Hogg and to participate in a craft activity you can do from home. Designed for young children. Free and open to the public.
