PICTURES FROM THE PAST
Workers install beams on Lucy Hill Patterson Memorial Library in 1963. Library observed 50 years in building during 2013. The Reporter went back in time for several stories during the year just past and illustrated those stories with historic photos. Here are some:
Rockdale Presbyterians observed 60 years in ‘new’ church during year. Previous congregation worshiped in this one from 1914.
Walter Suess of Rockdale rescued 44 residents of Valley Junction from Brazos River flood waters in 1913. Seven years after his heroism he wed Louise Stolz. This was their wedding photo. Suess’s dramatic story was subject of Reporter story in December.
